Community Plan Design
The city of Hillsboro engaged Mad Bird Design to create the signature resource guide for their community visioning program – the Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan. Book design was part of an overall rebranding and logo design effort, building on the successful legacy of the Hillsboro 2020 Vision. The new plan has earned national recognition and compliments for the city – and represents three years of extensive citizen outreach, direct work by over 60 stakeholders, and input and ideas from over 5,000 community members.
The Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan was recognized by the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) with the Organization of the Year award for exemplary public process in 2016. The long-standing visioning program serves as a model of public participation throughout the United States and abroad.
