A concept for positive action in Chester

What we did

A while back a small collective of us started using the #makechester hashtag on social media to keep track of conversations when discussing projects in Chester.

We collaborated with Sam Ryley on a pop-up project in Chester, a combination of his photography exhibition; the OneChair Project, and our free coworking space; INDUSTRY. I had the idea of using the hashtag concept as an overarching moniker for the joint project.

The concept clarified in the middle of the night, a design based on the hashtag that represents people coming together to create something in a central space; social or physical. A unifying hashtag mark, nobody owns it but everyone can add to it. The initial 4am sketch from my phone App is below.
