This past semester, my Design of Advertising students worked with Memphis groups, Urban Art Commission and The Mayor’s Innovation Delivery Team to create a Stewardship Campaign designed to enable ownership and improve the appearance of abandoned buildings in the South Memphis neighborhood.

The students who developed the campaign were Laura Miller, Dustin Lester, Mitchell Dunnam, Melinda Parra and Alyssa Ficks.

"Make Memphis" is constructed by a series of stencils inspired by the classic architecture of South Memphis.
