In my role as a contracted creative lead for BMO Harris Bank, we were asked to produce a content piece to highlight the effects of investments in urban revitalization.

As a stark example of these effects, we focused on the booming Fulton Market neighborhood in Chicago. A long overlooked area until several notable corporation selected the location for their headquarters.

Central to the neighborhoods growth has been the investment group Sterling Bay. As a client of BMO Harris Bank, our team sought to highlight the history of the neighborhood and the investments that shaped its redevelopment.

Through historical image annotations and an animated gif map, we highlighted how a series of investments spurred other developments in the area.
