Cherokee Street in south St. Louis lies at the center of the city’s most diverse & densely populated neighborhoods. Throughout its evolution the street has developed a unique identity & culture, born from the independent small businesses, Mexican eateries, infamous festivals, towering murals and most of all from the people that call Cherokee Street home. In this session for STL Design Week, designers of different mediums share how they’ve incorporated the street’s one-of-a-kind character in event branding, landscape design, digital marketing and other creative projects.
