Neighbor to Neighbor

In collaboration with Erica Heathcote

Note: this project is about the process book developed for a sponsored project done in collaboration with Erica Heathcote, Will Callis, Yasmin Ali, Sarah Cremering, Jigyasa Tuli, Tracee Hartley, and Mathew Nielson during the Fall 2019 semester.

Neighbor to Neighbor is a community outreach program with a mission to lower the number of property tax foreclosures in the city of Detroit through neighborhood-led workshops and outreach. Over 15 weeks, myself and 7 other hand-selected members conducted extensive research and ethnography to design a complete branding system for Neighbor to Neighbor, a comprehensive property tax exemption (PTE) application kit, and a redesigned version of the city of Detroit’s PTE application form.
