idBrooklyn is a large-scale semi crowd sourced design project with a goal of creating the graphic identity of Brooklyn through community support. The project, which launched on kickstarter wants to setup a series of community-based workshops, with a website and a mobile app that will showcase icons of Brooklyn’s culture which will hopefully create the New York’s first community branded borough. I’m loving the icons I am seeing so far, and the screenshots of the free iPad app look promising. If I were a Brooklynite I’d participate for sure.
“In recent years Brooklyn’s culture has received national and international attention due to its booming arts and maker cultures juxtaposed with its historical significance in the United States.” So why not showcase Brooklyn to the world.
