We appreciate the hard work it takes for a business to grow—and flourish. So when the folks at Common Ground Food Co-op in Urbana, Illinois asked us to develop a complete environmental overhaul for their newly expanded space, we dug right in. Along with exterior, interior & wall signage, we developed a design system to capture the full Common Ground experience
—from promoting local & organic production to building community.
Check it out for yourself at Common Ground’s grand opening celebration, happening all this week through Sunday.
Thank you to Jodi Heckel and Darrel Hoemann for featuring our space in the latest issue of the News-Gazette's At Home Magazine.
Future CEOs have a steep ladder to climb. And with their eyes on the summit, it’s crucial to get the scoop from the superstars who’ve reached it.
S51 recently collaborated with the folks at the Executive MBA program at Illinois to craft an interactive website and video tour. With interviews, animated graphics and live-chat capabilities, the site lets potential EMBA candidates really delve into alumni success stories, pick experts’ brains, catch a glimpse of student life and chat with an EMBA rep. In other words, it’s a site where people’s 2 cents can truly inspire a million-dollar career.
Construction is progressing quickly at the new location of Surface 51, and we're excited to show you some of the cool new features of the space.
We have some real progress on building out our new space at Blue Line Station!

SURFACE 51 recently had the privilege of working with a community organization that touches thousands of lives—the Mental Health Center of Champaign County. We met with Mental Health Center staff, board members and clients to get at the core principles behind its commitment to recovery and wellness: wholeness, strength, diversity and community. And out of those meetings an all-new name for the Center was developed—Community Elements.
SURFACE 51 also created an overall brand identity that communicates Community Elements’ central message—Wellness and Recovery for the Community.
