According To Yelp, Wallpaper Is Back

Posted inGraphic Design

The crowd-sourcing review site, Yelp, has just announced its partnership with home decor brand Chasing Paper. Together, the two outlets have created a series of three wallpaper prints that feature popular small businesses across the United States. 

The prints are made up of sketches by the New York City-based graphic designer and illustrator Amanda Giuffre, and each collection features iconic small businesses from New York City, San Francisco, and Austin. All of Yelp’s contributions to the collaboration and a portion of Chasing Paper’s proceeds will go back to supporting local businesses.  

Yelp will donate their portion of the proceeds to local and small businesses as well, but they’re also helping cover the expenses of the wallpaper installation for the first 30 folks that purchase panels of the limited-edition traditional wallpaper print and use Yelp’s Request a Quote feature to select a home service professional.

Each design comes in three iconic color pairings: black and white, red and white, and grey and blue. In addition, Yelp selected local businesses based on their reviews and their agreement to be featured in the design for the campaign. For the New York list, Amy Ruth’s, Ruby’s, and Freeman’s made the cut, and Shizen, Marufuku Ramen, and  Green Apple Books are a few from San Francisco. 

Even if you’re not in the market for new wallpaper, the list of local spots featured in the design doubles as a pretty killer travel guide.
