YouOrleans is an identity system developed by students, alumni, and instructors from Art Center College of Design, formed to brand the Katrina Furniture Project. The identity graphically represents the resilient and ever-optimistic citizens of New Orleans, as well as the craftspeople at the Katrina Furniture Project who are using their talent to affect recovery and reclaim their lives. The project based its design solution on the typographic identifier of “Re”―as in Recovery, Revitalization, Reformation, Reuse, Redevelop, and Redeem―embodied in the furniture.
