BBP is responsible for the design, construction, maintenance, and operations of Brooklyn Bridge Park (the “Park”), an 85-acre world-class park that stretches along the Brooklyn waterfront from Atlantic Avenue to Jay Street. The park reconnects the citizens of Brooklyn to their waterfront, replacing abandoned piers, parking lots, and storage sheds with opportunities to play sports, stroll, or lounge at the water’s edge. Adding much-needed open space for Brooklyn and New York City residents, Brooklyn Bridge Park contributes to the extraordinary revitalization of the New York City waterfront and serves as a bridge from the commercial uses of previous centuries to the recreational uses of the future.
BBPC has worked for over 25 years to bring Brooklyn Bridge Park to life. BBPC began as grassroots advocates, bringing together residents, government, and local supporters to transform an abandoned waterfront into the park that exists today. BBPC produces diverse and innovative programming for park visitors and cultivates volunteer and philanthropic support of the park. Together as the Park’s stewards, BBP and BBPC work closely to ensure that the Park reaches its full potential as a dynamic and vibrant public space for Brooklyn, New York City, and beyond.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND TARGET AUDIENCE
The current Park website is jointly administered by BBP and BBPC. The current website design needs updating to better serve the millions of annual visitors to the Park. The new website is expected to be a visually appealing guide that reflects the beauty and design of the Park and details the many events and activities available within the Park. The new website is expected to be more user-friendly and easier to navigate than the current Park website, and to provide more succinct and relevant information for new or returning Park visitors.
Please note that BBP and BBPC are committed to the existing graphics and branding. Any submission that proposes a change to logos, color scheme, or branding will not be considered. BBP, BBPC, and its design consultant(s) will make available all necessary graphics, renderings, images, and content necessary for the redesign.
Optional information session will be held on June 27, 2019. Last day to submit questions is July 10, 2019.
