MoB+Storefront operates on the belief that good design makes a healthier city where citizens participate more fully in their environment, their government and their culture. MoB is a partnership of three design departments of VCUarts, Graphic Design, Fashion Design and Interior Design. These departments operate an experimental design lab that realizes the potential of design to shape the City. The Storefront for Community Design is Richmond’s non-profit design assistance center, improving the quality of design in the city by facilitating access to design and planning resources. MoB+Storefront is a partnership between MoB and The Storefront for Community Design that joins the energy, enthusiasm and expertise of VCU students and faculty with Storefront’s community connections. Students work with professional design mentors, faculty, and citizens in the studio to solve design problems ranging from dog park shelters, to cancer treatment garments, clinics and nutrition programs.
