Steve Shanabruch is a designer that grew up in Beverly, Chicago. He started a project to combine his two passions, design and Chicago, and started making a logo for every community area in Chicago. At this moment the project isn’t finished yet and Steve tries to add a new logo every monday.
One designer’s take on Chicago
Some of these logos are based on personal experiences and intimate knowledge of certain neighborhoods (such as Beverly, where I grew up), but in most cases these logos come from inspiration gleaned from various sources, including online research and conversations with current and past residents.
