Graphic Design Overview:

“Main Street. The words conjure up images of wholesome small town life. A time when every town had a unique character created by its architecture and locally owned and operated businesses along our main streets…” Using before and after photos, interviews with Main Street Community leaders, and historical images, RDG  worked with Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) to craft an uplifting story of community restoration and revitalization while also celebrating the impact of Main Street Challenge grants over the past 25 years. The end result was an 8 minute documentary style film that was used by IEDA at their annual awards ceremony, shared on their website as well as community websites throughout the state of Iowa, and picked up by national media, such as the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Preservation Leadership Forum.
