Older, mixed-use neighborhoods are more walkable.

Young people love old buildings.

Nightlife is most vibrant on streets with a diverse range of building age.


The creative economy thrives in older, mixed-use neighborhoods.

All entrepreneurs find better opportunities in older business districts.


Older, smaller buildings provide space for a strong local economy.

Older commercial and mixed-use districts contain hidden density.




Created for SCAD's Collaborative Learning Center, in association with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, StreetLight allows people interested in city-development to mine data from 45 different data sets - ranging from walkability to the number of businesses in a district. An app, Socialight, uses data sets found on Streetlight to show people the locally-popular districts within a city. At the moment, Socialight is a prototype designed for Savannah, GA.

As the team Graphic Designer, I designed the logo, illustrations describing the findings of the study (shown here with their captions,) and worked closely with a team of designers, developers, advertisers, and preservationists from the conceptual stage all the way through delivery.

StreetLight, still in beta, can be viewed here.
