IASC is an intellectual community at the University of Virginia committed to understanding contemporary cultural change. They recently began a new research initiative, The Thriving Cities Project, which seeks to better understand the forces shaping current city life. Crime, childhood obesity, economic development, environmental degradation, affordable housing, family stability, quality of infrastructure, and support for public schools are just some of the areas they are exploring. To brand the project, they asked us to create a logo that captured the essence of today’s vibrant cities.
