Mod's comments: This nifty piece shows the Chicago skyline under the Portage Park arc. We loved the idea of Portage Park embracing the whole of Chicago.
Artist's comments: This nifty piece showcases the history of portage park. The arrowhead pays respects to the native Americans who gave the area. The lagoon represents our powerful community that has thrived and continues to grow in new and beautiful ways. Finally, the Chicago skyline under the iconic Portage Park arc embodies the ambitions of the community and the success that we have all come together to create.
Mod's comments: This piece of retro art is inspired by the local Portage Park movie theatre. We loved the idea, simplicity and its genuine connection to the neighbourhood.
Artist's comment: This logo was based from the design of the Theatre Marquee in Portage Park. I thought it was important to reference local culture in its design.

Mod's comments: These art nouveau inspired gates also managed to catch our eye. We loved the simple yet expressive style.
Artist's comments: Values and emotions that logo aims to ignite:
Openness (opened gate)
Solidarity (once you pass the gate you become the member of grateful community)
Kindness (all willing to help)
A mark that community can identify with.
Mod's comment: This stylised arc in red and white is another extremely simple yet expressive logo worthy of your attention. We loved the minimalist approach.
Artist's comment: What I was looking for this logo is to represent the polish flag into a creative way: so I decided to use the red colour to make the arc of the entrance of portage park, while following a minimalistic language I played with the negative form, taking advantage of the white background, so I could represent the white colour of the polish flag, and this way I can make this flag with the colours of the words, which represents correctly the polish flag
Mod's comments: This collage inspired piece of art covers it all. We loved how it included so many aspects of our project - the park, upx and our red and white buildings - while still being stylish and simple.
Artist's comment: At the center or heart of the design one will notice lush foliage and the gates of the Portage Park encircled in red and black. The lush foliage and metal gates not only embroider the description but also stand for the group being welcoming and strong. The Park not only gave the area its namesake, it created the neighbourhood by bringing different communities together. Behind the center graphics and overall shape of the image is the map of the Portage Park neighbourhood including the streets and avenues. It is outlined in our colors of red and white. Portage Park is not just a park but also a community and I wanted it to be acknowledged. I avoided imagery of large construction in my design because PP is a residential area designed for people to live in. Instead I added a small number of our red and white buildings. I also added some upx at the bottom as it is the main currency of the game, and added est. 2021 for the year the development project started
