history

The Brookdale Park Conservancy, designed in 1928-1930 by the Olmsted Brothers Firm (of Central Park, NYC fame), is over 120 acres of park space in the historic Essex County, NJ. It was also originally a project of the Works Progress Administration—the very same initiative that inspired our name.

Their original logo, while a lovely mark, just wasn’t capturing the park’s historical significance or the modern aesthetic of their main audience—30-something New Yorkers who have migrated to the area to start families. Looking to the artwork of the WPA era for historical inspiration, we created a reinterpretation befitting this modern-minded community.

That logo is so original, darling, charming, surprising, delightful…”
