citizen designers

would be interesting to apply this approach to grocery stores, markets, convenience stores, gas stations, drug stores, etc in low-income neighborhoods or food deserts for citizens to indicate items they are most in need of. I wish this was as simple as it sounds…very excited to see the results and implications for design.

I Wish This Was….an awesome civic improvement campaign…and it is!

From brilliant designer and creator, Candy Chang:

Many cities are full of vacant storefronts and people who need things. My New Orleans neighborhood is still without a full-service grocery store. So I made these fill-in-the-blank stickers to provide an easy tool to voice what we want, where we want it. Just fill them out and put them on abandoned buildings and beyond. The stickers are custom vinyl and can be easily removed without damaging property. It’s a fun, low-barrier tool for citizens to provide civic input on-site, and the responses reflect the hopes, dreams, and colorful imaginations in different neighborhoods.
