rockefeller foundation



It’s no secret that Soulellis Studio loves Knockout. We’ve used it a lot, mostly for our work for the Municipal Art Society of New York. Through MAS, we recently began working with The Rockefeller Foundation. Today’s print edition of the New York Times announces the 2010 NYC Cultural Innovation Fund grantees on page A27, with an ad we designed for them. We paired Knockout with Dalton Maag’s Aktiv Grotesk for a revolving, sliding grid of congratulatory messages and program descriptions.

Also just printed: materials for the MASterworks Awards, part of the MAS Summit for New York City on October 20-21.


Plain jane.

We produced these Enviro-Tote bags for the Rockefeller Foundation’s Jane Jacobs Medal event in September. I just got mine yesterday and it was filled with books, including the excellent Wrestling With Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took On New York’s Master Builder and Transformed the American City.


John and Jane.

John D. Rockefeller began the Rockefeller Foundation in 1913 with a gift of $35 million, “to promote the well-being of mankind throughout the world.” 48 years later, the Foundation provided a seminal grant to an unknown Jane Jacobs for the research and writing of her classic work “The Death and Life of Great American Cities.”
One year after Jane’s death in 2006, the Foundation established the Jane Jacobs Medal, “to recognize visionary work in building a more diverse, dynamic and equitable city through creative uses of the urban environment.”
We designed the invitation package for the 2009 Awards Ceremony and it was beautifully printed by Karr Graphics.
