This week at Doejo the focus was on Chicago-centric design. After recapping our Creative Mornings event, where Sara Frisk from IDEO shared lessons from her illustrious career in graphic design, we began to prep for our upcoming talk at the Apple Store on Michigan Avenue.

We also interviewed Steve Shanabruch, the designer behind The Chicago Neighborhoods project, who is tacking the tall task of creating a logo to represent every neighborhood in the city.
