Isidor Studio's team included Mel Isidor as the lead booklet designer and Sarah Rege as the illustrative graphics lead. The interplay of typography and other design elements creates a balance of formality and playfulness. Furthermore, collage-cut shapes and iconography play off the aesthetics of the BlackSpace manifesto. Key illustrative graphics included a process diagram, community map, and an axon series demonstrating proposed building use and activation strategies.
The design strategy book is led by BlackSpace Urbanist Collective in partnership with Brownsville Heritage House to reimagine its existing space as the neighborhood’s public “living room.” The vision includes space to house the extensive archive, curate exhibitions, and cultivate an expanding programming ecosystem. Leveraged by an incredible passion, a diverse knowledge base, and a mission to ensure BHH thrives beyond the next forty years, the design strategy aims to provide clarity of goals in creating an environment that enriches BHH’s tremendous legacy.
