Aly and Beth developed an energetic 3 hour creative session to elicit ideas about what Raleigh has to offer. They then facilitated the workshop, along with nine additional members of Designbox. Hosted by the Raleigh Convention Center, the charrette was attended by a diverse group of about 80 city leaders. Each Designbox member led an 8-person group which was tasked with communicating impressions, stories, and imagery to capture the city’s spirit. The work from each group is intended to guide downtown development and marketing efforts in reflecting the city’s culture, leveraging the local resources, and establishing an image of Raleigh to present to the rest of the world.
