We're always happy to spend Spring Break at Pratt Institute! Our team took advantage of a sunny day in March to tour the campus and brainstorm new wayfinding solutions to come in 2022.
This week's inspiration courtesy of the legendary Saul Bass.
T-Squared designer @brandonsaloy was in awe of the current exhibition, "Faith Ringgold: American People" at The New Museum. Ringgold's "For The Women's House," which draws a steady crowd in the exhibit, was commissioned in 1972 for the female inmates at Rikers Island. The painting imagines the inmates in careers beyond their reach—president, minister, basketball player—and was relocated to the Rose M. Singer Center in 1988 when Rikers began housing men and the painting became the target of vandalism. What exhibits have you checked out lately?
Meet our new intern, India! India is a Fashion Institute of Technology senior studying Spatial Experience Design, with minors in English Writing and Art History. Before interning with T-Squared, India interned as a researcher and editor for the Sign Research Foundation, and also worked as a Research Assistant and Technology Coordinator for Bamboo Canvas. She has now entered the world of experiential graphic design joining the T-Squared team seeking a collaborative work environment where she can explore the many modes of storytelling through language and design. India is always up for a challenge, here she is on her first day at T-Squared, doing a signage site visit of the Columbia Business School's Manhattanville campus.
T-Squared was honored last month with the opportunity to provide graphics for the debut Woodlands Art Collection exhibition at the New York Institute of Technology. "Art, Health and Wellness: The Power of Nature—Through the Eyes of Sculptor Emilie Brzezinski" is now on view in the new Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D. Art Gallery and Student Lounge on the first floor of 1855 Broadway on the New York City campus. Enjoy these remarks by Brzezinski's daughter Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, from the opening night ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Cornell University students are currently enjoying two brand new buildings on campus and we at T-Squared are just as excited about it as they are! We're proud to share the first phase of signage to be installed as part of the North Campus Residential Expansion Project, and we'd like to thank the team at ikon.5 architects and Cornell University for including us in this monumental work.
We are proud to announce the official opening of the Queens Public Library at Glendale; a beautifully restored branch brought back to its community. We’ve enjoyed working closely with the Matthew Baird Architects team and Queens Public Library to provide a signage and wayfinding program that compliments the architectural finishes of this historical branch.
I am so proud to have moderated this incredible panel for today’s discussion, “Designing for Success,” as part of the SEGD-NY Chapter segment. We hit many key topics from storytelling in guidelines to the importance of the designer-manufacturer-fabricator relationship and staying up to date with the latest technology and material specifications. Thank you to SEGD-NY for including T-Squared in the panel and thank you to our distinguished panel for your valuable insights.
We are proud to be part of the creative team for the newly beautifully designed lobby renovation project at Bank Street College of Education. We just installed the last part of their branding and wayfinding signage! This lobby, featuring a sleek brand identification as you enter and new wayfinding components, is the final installment in a stunning top-to-bottom building renovation/signage roll-out. It has been our pleasure to work with this distinguished team.

Another department of the NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Center 41 installed! We’re always proud to be a part of this design team which is close to completing its full 25-floor renovation.
We were proud to support this newly formed organization at the first annual IBDPros golf outing by designing their initial brand identity and translating it to all event material. Congrats on a successful turnout!
T-Squared is proud to announce our contribution as it relates to the interior, exterior and wayfinding signage program for the new North Campus Residential Expansion Project at Cornell University. The project will add five new residential halls to the Ithaca Campus.
The Cornell naming committee sought the names of alumni whose groundbreaking careers and global impact could energize Cornell students and articulate Cornell’s diversity. These buildings will be named in recognition of five key historical figures and groups: Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Nobel Prize winner Barbara McClintock, Asian scholar and diplomat Hu Shih, and the Cayuga Nation, Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫʼ, whose land Cornell was built on in 1868.
We are honored to bring our experience to the design of this campus and the values that it upholds. The first two buildings to open this year!
We're inspired this week by the astounding work of Julie Mehretu after visiting her mid-career retrospective at the Whitney Museum last week. Mehretu's mesmerizing technique of mark-making—which she calls "characters"—layered over meticulously reproduced architectural elevations and plans are a stunning meditation on human migration and how we relate to public space.
Last week marked the 125th Anniversary of Queens Public Library! We've been honored to work with the @qplnyc team to provide signage and wayfinding solutions for a number of branches, including the newly renovated Glendale branch pictured here (opening this year). Congratulations to the Queens Public Library team for keeping its libraries thriving for the community to utilize and value!
MEET OUR TEAM! Tommie's dedication is felt throughout the entire team. Her constant energy and playful style keeps us going! Tommie keeps a watchful, protective eye over the entire team and will put you in your place if you step out of line. She has assisted on some site visits, although prefers to spend her time chilling in the studio. In her spare time you will find her playing ball, enjoying long walks on the beach and spending time with her best buds.
Last week our team visited the newly-constructed 200,000 square foot flagship laboratory facility for Quest Diagnostics. As this massive project moves forward, we're delighted to share the first completed component of our scope, wayfinding and code signage for the site's 5-level parking garage. We have enjoyed working with the Flad Architects team over the last couple of years! Stay tuned for further development as the site continues to near completion.
MEET OUR TEAM! Matthew Aubert has been an intricate part of the t-squared team over the past 6 years. Matthew's role focuses on the design and development of workplace brand graphics, donor recognition programs, wayfinding systems and experiential graphics. He has worked on a variety of projects for our clients, such as Queens Public Library, Cornell University, and the International House. Matthew has a sharp eye for detail. When he's not working with t-squared you can probably find him backpacking in the mountains, playing the piano, creating metalwork, or reading a good book.

"Architecture can't force people to connect, it can only plan the crossing points, remove barriers, and make the meeting places useful and attractive."
This quote from architect Denise Scott Brown has been on our minds lately as COVID-19 has forced us to reconsider the spaces we live and work in every day for both ourselves and our clients. How can these "crossing points" be reconfigured to protect workers from becoming ill? How do we add more and more barriers between people in order to keep them safe without losing sight of the human need to feel connected to one another? The answer is still unclear, but the question continues to inspire us.
MEET OUR TEAM! Brandon Saloy is the newest addition to the t-squared team as a Graphic Designer. Brandon graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology in 2018 and joined t-squared shortly after completing a residency in Type Design at the School of Visual Arts the following summer. In addition to design, you can find him overseeing installations on-site and photographing various signage projects for this very page. Brandon lives in Astoria, where he spends his time watching classic films and waiting for Broadway theaters to reopen, finally.
We were excited to be part of the team for the new ambulatory care center for Ryan Health located in Washington Heights. We really enjoy working closely on projects that give back to our local communities.
