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.

Take advantage of the many benefits that come with being an AIGA member: savings, information, community, inspiration and more.
I’m sure many of us know at least one person who’s paused in awe on their five- or ten-year anniversary at a company and wondered aloud, “How have I been here so long without realizing it?” We often live with blinders on, looking straight ahead for long periods of time without so much as glancing around us.
