A program of the State Education Department, the New York State Archives cares for, provides access to, and promotes the use of the more than 250 million documents in its collections dating from the period of Dutch and British colonial rule during the 17th and 18th centuries through the modern day. Archives staff also oversees records management programs, offers archival advisory services to other state agencies and local governments statewide, and provides programs that support education and research to develop new knowledge using primary source materials.
Since 1998, 2k Design has worked with the New State Archives on an extensive range of projects to support its programs and promote its holdings and activities. Our work has included the design of the exhibition space in the lobby of the 11th floor of the Cultural Education Center, a visual enhancement of the interior of the Research Room on that floor, a redesign of its website, and the development of materials that promote its events and collections to its various audiences.
For over two decades, 2k Design has crafted strategic design solutions based on our clients’ unique needs. Our work includes identity, print, web, packaging, signage, and exhibit design. We believe thoughtful planning, exceptional creativity, and outstanding organization are essential in developing the details of a project in a way that make the most sense, provides the most value, and has the greatest impact.
