The Archives of Brooklyn Museum

When Only NY and the Brooklyn Museum began the collaboration process, the museum opened their doors to our design team and granted access to some of the lesser known parts of the museum. We took particular interest in the archive, with a nearly 200 year history, offering no shortage of inspiration. Museum Archivist, Molly Seegers, brought the team through the archive and we were able to wade through decades of exhibition posters, museum ephemera, letterhead, logos, branding, and photographs.
