During a six-month stretch of 2019, more than 20 Salt Lake City-based designers will each create a new brand (determined via lottery) for one of the city’s neighborhoods — a mix of neighborhoods officially designated, publicly acknowledged, or historically significant. This isn’t a paid project, but rather a creative outlet connecting Salt Lake’s graphic design community with the city we love, and to each other.

The Neighborhood Project was created by two Salt Lake City-based design firms, Third Sun (Michael Yount, Jocelyn Kearl, Troy Mumm, and Marina Atherton-Howe) and Coast to Coast Studio (Lucy Blatt and Paige Kershaw).
