The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) announced that Vendor Power! will be showcased at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Triennial: Why Design Now?
Inaugurated in 2000, the Triennial series "seeks out and presents the most innovative, forward-thinking designs at the center of contemporary culture from the previous three years."
Vendor Power! is a collaboration of CUP, The Street Vendor Project, and designer Candy Chang.
The foldout poster uses innovative graphic design to translate city vending regulation for New York's 10,000 vendors.
The guide makes it easier for vendors to know their rights, avoid tickets, and make an honest living.
It folds out into a playful, eye-catching poster that teaches non-vendors about the landscape and history of vending in the City.
Vendor Power! is the third publication of Making Policy Public, CUP's ongoing series of foldout posters that pairs advocates with designers to make complex public policy issues more accessible.
CUP selects program participants through a juried process and facilitates their collaboration.
Making Policy Public is published four times a year.
