Neighborhood Square

Though DNAinfo had established itself as the leading neighborhood news source in New York City and Chicago, there was more happening in these neighborhoods than any newsroom could possibly cover. Enter Neighborhood Square, DNAinfo’s social hub that empowered neighbors to connect, share, learn from and have conversations with each other about the neighborhood matters that didn’t make the news.

 Inspired by the idea of bringing the city’s communities online, we crafted an expressive, welcoming and vibrant brand identity by employing a bold logo, bright colors and playful illustrations.
