Designlounge is a Brooklyn-based design firm. We create visual identities, printed materials, complex communication systems, and website designs for non-profit organizations, universities and schools, arts and media institutions, and tiny islands.

Entitled “Ahead Of The Curve”, the 2016-2017 annual report (and poster) for Riverdale Country School focuses on the growth mindset that puts Riverdale, and its students and faculty, ahead of the curve.

For over a decade Designlounge has worked with the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) to design the organization’s logo identity, a comprehensive publication template system, six annual reports, a series of special reports and many other smaller but no less important communication materials. View a selection of these projects, all relating to the expanding field of transitional justice.

By choosing to become a falcon at the Riverdale Country School, a student will become part of a long-standing tradition of success and pride both in the classroom and on the playing fields and courts. Designlounge worked with the school to refresh the athletics icon and overall brand identity. Go Falcons.
For Turnaround for Children, an organization that provides strategies for schools with high concentrations of students impacted by adversity, Designlounge created an Intervention Resource Manual as well as a suite of anchor visuals describing the science behind brain development and child behavior.

The design process for every project is roughly the same, but the details can vary from task to task. Sometimes the research needs more time or, depending on the type of the project, the design phase might require extra steps to make sure all variables have been considered. But there is always a bit of “D” and “L” in every project: “Design” and “Lounge”. A good dose of purposeful lounging will focus the mind and spark creative ideas.
