Union Squared



Ever heard of Detroit-style pizza? I hadn't, but when Union Pizza brought their hometown specialty to Chicago’s Revival Food Hall, my team hunkered down with a few square pies and a big appetite for research. We developed branding, collateral, and custom illustrations to help make their launch at Chicago’s hottest lunch destination a success.
