Chris Murphy on Everywhere Project

UAB Design Alumni, Christopher Murphy was asked by the Everywhere Project to design the badge for the city of Chattanooga. When talking about the project Murphy said:

"Chattanooga is a perfect example of the new south in the 21st century. It's a city in transition from its historic and industrial past to its technological and environmental future. Its a city that's creating its own typeface, a city that can see seven states. Chattanooga is the scenic city with plenty on the horizon, Y'all!"

Murphy used a typeface designed specifically for the city of Chattanooga as a way to reinforce the importance of design and how it can build a powerful message about everything that we do. Murphy's "Chat" Badge is also featured on in an article that explores the importance of design to development.
