Anixter Center // The Power of Design to Transform Lives


Anixter Center is one of the largest Chicago nonprofits that serves people with disabilities. What started in 1918 with a need to have an orphanage for abandoned children has grown into an organization that now serves 7,300 adults and children annually through 34 programs and services at 35 locations across the greater Chicago area. Programs focus on providing those with all types of disabilities the ability to participate fully and equally in society. 90% of the non-profit’s clients are at or below the federal poverty line.

How do spaces influence people? What impact does design have on the way we feel? Those are just some of the questions Anixter Center asked itself before embarking on a remarkable journey that would change the face of their non-profit organization. This video tells that story.

Chicago Youth of the Year Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago 2014

Chicago Youth of the Year Event


Each year, individual clubs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago (BGCC) nominate one exemplary member to compete for the title of BGCC’s Youth of the Year. The Award is considered the Nonprofit organization’s highest local honor; rewarding leadership, service, and academic standing. Eight candidates competed for this year’s title. Each of them shared amazing stories about how the organization has changed their lives. We filmed the event, which had over 1,000 people in attendance at Navy Pier in Chicago. After the event, we edited the highlight video online and delivered 100 DVDs to donors; some of which had custom thank you’s from each of the candidates.

This is our second year following the Youth of the Year candidates for the Chicago nonprofit as they prepare for the culminating event at Navy Pier in Chicago. Our crew filmed at three of their clubs and interviewed those club’s candidates. We also filmed two preparation meetings, a final dress rehearsal, and multiple interviews with the remaining candidates and some of the staff. In all, it was five days of field production.
