Vitaliy Vladimirov is a planner, designer, and advocate who centers ideals of equity in all he does. As an Associate at MUSE Community + Design, he has a hand in developing many of the firm’s public engagement tools, events, and materials, notably the tactile “Design a Street” that lets anyone, especially children, design roads using a magnetic board with pieces he illustrated. He’s also developed community workshops, filmed and edited videos, designed planning documents and reports, and taught himself motion graphics to help the firm pivot online.
He is a frequent speaker in classrooms for all ages, including 3rd graders at the Latin School, for whom he designed a unit on Uptown’s gentrification. Currently, he is on the board of the Neighbor to Neighbor Literacy Project, which installs Little Free Libraries across Chicago and especially on its South and West sides.
