Community-Designed Grocery Store Vision was a finalist for the 2013 Design Ignites Change | AIGA Professional Fellowship
Location: Chicago, Illinois
About the projectCountless neighborhoods lack access to high-quality food, face high unemployment and a disconnection between local businesses and residents. There are no real opportunities to invest in one’s immediate neighborhood, let alone receive investment from outsiders.
By surveying the hyper-local communities, the Community-Designed Grocery Store Vision project by RESUSstudio seeks to incite in residents a vision of a community-driven grocery store that not only provides high quality food and produce, but also gives back to the community itself. Starting with three Chicago neighborhoods as a case study, the project aims to explore how to improve the relationship of a grocery store to its community.
Next stepsAfter deploying a comprehensive local survey, the project will create and visually summarize the unique vitals of a community—residents’ habits, its buying power and its distinct conditions. This will offer an empowering sense of identity and a vision of a community asset—a grocery store—that residents can support and be proud of.

Design methodologies add value to the visual arts curriculum by teaching the practical and purposeful
application of creative thinking—the very definition of innovation. So why has design education been largely absent in conversations about K12 education reform?
