H Street Acorn

H Street Acorn

Challenge

A client needed a way to communicate that development was coming to the neighborhood despite being several years out.

Solution

The acorn mural shows the interworking of a factory inside a seed to highlighting that things are growing even when we can’t see them. Not only did the mural infer the coming Apollo wasn’t taking over the neighborhood but growing from the legacy of its past famous theater, it also reminds us that big things often hide in ordinary people.

The mural even became an icon for DC development as far away as Moscow.
