We connect community-based organizations with professional designers to help build vibrant neighborhoods, commercial districts, and storefronts.
Visual design helps neighborhoods promote local businesses and attract customers, yet many community-based organizations (CBOs) do not have in-house design expertise. We partner with the World Studio Foundation to provide design services, teach organizations how to build internal design skills, and complete neighborhood-wide branding projects. Organizations will work with a designer to brainstorm, plan, and carry out a creative design event or campaign. Each project will connect to a long-term vision for a commercial corridor.
