The Chicago Neighborhoods is a beautiful & extensive personal project by Chicago resident Steve Shanabruch. Steve set out to brand every neighborhood in his beloved city and the results are quite stunning. Although these designs have no life outside of the project, it’s always important for designers to have pet-projects that blend their love of design with the other loves in their life, so, bravo to you Steve!
Steve explains, “branding a neighborhood is quite subjective. My experiences and knowledge are obviously different than those of someone else, especially a long-time resident, so let’s call this project “One designer’s take on Chicago.” My vision might not match yours, but I hope that we can agree that a neighborhood with a logo is better than a neighborhood without.”
