Mapping Food Access

After extensive historical research, I illustrated a century of shifting geography of food access and income in a rust-belt town. Inspired by Rebecca Solnit's Infinite City, this was my undergraduate thesis in US history.  While there is much I would change about this project’s visuals now, the project exemplifies my interest in the intersection of design and social issues.

 I relied on extensive original source material for both data, historical context, and visual cues. The motifs and type reference the project’s historical sources: Polk city guides, hand-written grocery ledgers, mid-century food packaging, and the classifieds.
