826CHI, a branch of 826 National, has a Secret Agent-themed storefront that “hides” its creative writing, tutoring, and publishing center dedicated to amplifying the voices of Chicago youth. They required special operatives to deliver original assets and launch a new online HQ.
The agents were told to get the job done, by any means necessary. This freedom allowed for a bold and colorful user experience, with spy-themed embellishments purely for fun. Mission accomplished: a scalable, future-proof website featuring original illustrations.
