HOW CAN WE TELL THE STORIES OF TEN lesser known CHICAGO neighborhoods?

Those who have heard about Chicago will tell you about its skyline, its sports icons, and its deep-dish pizza. However very few people, including many Chicagoans, have ever heard about the less pronounced neighborhoods woven throughout Chicago’s grid. After talking with local business owners,  visitors in the stores, and people on the streets of these neighborhoods, we designed ten posters for ten Chicago neighborhoods to promote local tourism among residents and visitors. 

We increased local tourism in these understated neighborhoods by connecting their stories together—a story that’s now accessible to everyone: residents, visitors, and businesses.
