Mellody Farm sits outside of Chicago in Vernon Hills, Illinois. First came the creation of a logo and branding, which pay homage to the history of the site. Next we launched a Facebook page for this exciting development, and it now has more than 3,500 fans. The twist? Mellody Farm is currently a pile of dirt: the mixed-use project with 260 units of planned executive apartments isn’t slated to break ground for almost a year.
