Gabriela Gordon ’20 designed the new brand identity for the City of Albany, New York. Her design is one of seven concepts submitted by 13 Saint Rose graphic design students. The students, led by Professor Ann Breaznell, began studying Albany history and artifacts in 2019 to create a new brand identity that would reflect the city’s heritage and culture in today’s world. The new brand identity is used on Albany’s print and electronic publications and media.”Throughout the process, I increased my knowledge of the city that I had started to call home (and still do) a few years prior. The design process as a whole was a true collaboration between many talented Saint Rose designers — the ideas, thoughts, and hard work that my team produced brought this brand to life. I am truly thrilled that the culmination of our collaboration and dedication to design was chosen to represent the City for hopefully many years to come.”
