The Social Implications of “Make Memphis” Interventions in Underserved Neighborhoods

My Design of Advertising students at Memphis College of Art in conjunction w/ Urban Art Commission & Mayor’s Innovation Team worked with 25 square to develop a messaging campaign.

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.
