One of the most distinguished sites in American history, George Washington was inaugurated as the country’s first President here at Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York City. The birthplace of American government, it has since served as home to the first Congress, Supreme Court, and Executive Branch offices. In the winter of 2009, the popular and highly visible Abraham Lincoln in New York exhibition celebrated the bicentennial anniversary of the birth of the nation’s 16th president.
To honor this milestone, Archigrafika created a dynamic and unified branding program which included a series of large-scale banners and title signs, designed with sensitivity to the Greco-Roman architecture of the historic environment.
