Greencorps Chicago, City of Chicago Department of Environment*
OAI, Inc retained marquardt+ to provide strategy consultation and collateral materials design and development for the City of Chicago Department of Environment program, Greencorps Chicago.
m+ created their new informational brochure and extended booklet, including copywriting and editing. In addition, m+ helped solidify a cohesive message describing what Greencorps Chicago programs are and what they provide to their target communities and users. The brochure was designed to stand out in the sea of brochures located in kiosks at alderman offices, other city departments, and at the Greencorps Chicago headquarters. The booklet is a more comprehensive, multiple page piece that explains each program Greencorps Chicago, how community gardening and green job training programs relate to each other, and their impact on improving Chicago communities. All print materials were printed with soy-based inks on recycled content papers.
