Print Magazine: Impact vs. Recognition

Business cards designed for Downtown Hyde Park

Last month, our work for Downtown Hyde Park appeared in a Print Magazine op-ed. The author, Ellen Shapiro, experienced the brand experience as a weekend visitor to the Hyde Park neighborhood, and set out to uncover who was responsible for the work that delighted and inspired her. As luck would have it, it took the announcement of Otherwise winning an STA award that led Shapiro to us and set the stage for her interview with Nancy Lerner about this branding project and our process as a strategic creative firm.

Otherwise co-founder, Nancy Lerner believes in good design that speaks for itself and has a lasting impact. In the Print Magazine article, she told Ellen Shapiro that, “We are not about recognition but about having great impact.” And when our designs have a great impact they naturally receive recognition – like the STA award we recently won for our designs that revitalized the historic Chicago neighborhood through vibrant signage and a clear visual identity.

To achieve design that has impact, “we have a process we use to build consensus, a process that leads a group along a path of discovery.” Our design work makes a difference because of this sophisticated, unifying path of discovery. For the Downtown Hyde Park project, we were able to get people talking and working towards the same goal: a more vibrant downtown business district. In the article, Lerner mentions, “We got them to think about the good of the neighborhood rather than only about their own interests. That’s the kind of results we value, as well as its impact on neighborhood pride, on helping build the business community and fostering the improvement of this economic empowerment zone.” When this robust process of discovery informs our creative work, then the visual identity can have authentic meaning to both the community and the targeted audience.
