BE ON BELMONT
COMMUNICATIONS AND GRAPHIC DESIGN, RESEARCH, AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH
Developed communication strategies to engage various stakeholders in community-based placemaking work to thrive Belmont Ave. in Brownsville, Brooklyn.
The Belmont Avenue Taskforce engaged our team of multi-disciplinary designers to help them use placemaking to revive a once-thriving business district in Brownsville, Brooklyn. We first spent one month conducting a needs assessment of each organization within the taskforce, as well as of the residents and business owners on Belmont. We saw gaps in: i) the decentralized and novice placemaking efforts of each organization on the taskforce; and ii) the lack of visibility of their projects within the community.
