2|42 COMMUNITY CENTERS

For 2|42 Community Church's Brighton, MI campus, the church purchased a run-down warehouse in the worst part of town with the goal of transforming it into a year-round community center. Their idea was to reclaim the environment by reusing as much of the existing space as possible to create a refuge for family and children; working within the existing structures to bring out the best of the raw materials.

By pairing materials available onsite from the renovation work with natural, fabricated pieces, we were able to create a graphics and signage design that was tied to the facility's past while pointing towards the possibilities of the future. The result is a multi-functional community center where people can connect, bring their kids on a rainy day for basketball or soccer, enjoy a cup of coffee, and gather to worship.

For the children's space in 2|42 Community Church's Ann Arbor, MI campus, the church wanted a design that paid homage to the community they served in a way that was timeless and exciting. Our answer was to develop a graphics concept that reimagined local landmarks in the style of classic animation backgrounds. The result is a space full of life and vibrancy that feels familiar but still allows plenty of room for imagination and play.
