LISC Chicago

Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Chicago is a leading community development support organization. They work with individual neighborhoods to research and create viable plans for their residents to thrive. Talk about making a social impact in Chicago! 

With LISC, we have designed a broad range of materials that communicate to community members, local leadership and funders to make change at a grassroots level. Our strategy is to bring these local issues to life through imagery and information design to tell their stories.

Strategic Plan

Every few years LISC does the hard work to evaluate their work and define their strategy going forward. We worked with them to design this strategic plan. We worked to find a balance between the dynamic outcomes to be celebrated and the serious work ahead for the organization’s growth in impact.
