Since 2003, Urban Initiatives has empowered thousands of Chicago youth to become agents of community change through academic success, healthy living, and leadership development. They drive systematic change by connecting stakeholders and strengthening the social fabric of communities across the city. Urban Initiatives uses sport and the power of play as vehicles to engage Chicago's at-risk youth to participate in their sports based youth development programming.

Jordan Aschwege is just this guy, you know? He's a multimedia designer (graphic, web, video, the works) from Omaha, Nebraska, but is based out of St. Louis, Missouri. You might have seen his design work for the Fiesta Bowl, the Insight Bowl (now the Cactus Bowl), the United Football League, the Chicago Cubs, and a few others you may have heard of. When he's not working, you can probably find him spending time with his wife and daughter, Jessica and Hallie, and his dog Bradley. They love watching their beloved Blackhawks, any baseball game that's on, or Cornhusker football team (or counting down the days until they return). You can follow his antics/work on Twitter, Instagram and Dribbble.
