    MGMT.design and Thomas Wilder: Animals On The Loose in NYC

MGMT.design and Thomas Wilder pay tribute to animals spotted in NYC

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Do you remember how viscerally exciting it was when a dog got into your school? All rules were suspended, teachers lost control and the communal excitement spread through the corridors in an almost tangible way. There’s something of that heady excitement about this ace new project from Brooklyn-based studio MGMT.design which was inspired by the recent sighting of a dolphin in a New York canal.

They looked into which other weird and wonderful creatures had been on the loose in NYC in the past 10 years and the results were extraordinary – from a Bengal Tiger to a cobra, and a manatee to Prospero, the Ghost Dog of Brooklyn (really!). The studio then commissioned Thomas Wilder to produce these cool illustrations to adorn a set of wanted posters which document some of the strangest animal-based escapades The Big Apple has experienced.
