New prototypes for Central Park trash and recycling receptacles, commissioned by the Central Park Conservancy and designed by M.Arch alumnus and Landor Associates creative director Anthony Deen, have received international recognition from the design community. The Society for Experimental Graphic Design (SEGD) recently named the receptacles winner of  their Global Design Award. The designs also received a Lion in the Product Design category at the Cannes Festival of Creativity in France. Deen, along with his Landor colleagues Mike Boylan (senior industrial designer), Craig Dobie (creative director, lead graphic designer), Lady Tanmantiong (graphic designer), and Brad Scott (senior director, project lead), took inspiration from the Park’s varied landscape and architectural features to create prototype designs aimed at both increasing public participation as well as facilitating the collection of recycled materials.
