Friends of the High Line

The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan's West Side, NY. It's maintained, operated, and programmed by Friends of the High Line, in partnership with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

We were commissioned by Friends of the High Line to come up with a promotional piece that encompassed the light-hearted tone of their storytelling & comedy night: "There Will Be Pie." The night featured stories, stand-up, New York’s best-est, and of course, pie.
For the promotional piece, we crafted a dreamlike paper landscape of the High Line to tell the story of the event, surrounding the custom-lettered title by dense vegetation and floating slices of pie. The layered scene was later replicated on a larger scale when we designed the stage for the event.
