"By providing principled chiropractic care, educating families in a holistic lifestyle, and delivering tools for living a health-based life, we believe our community will unlock its full potential." - Roots Family Chiropractic

Family (noun) /fam'i-ly/ : a unit of people that love and support each other through good times and bad.

Family is very important to everyone.  In our culture, the label of 'family' moves beyond blood relation to include all who support and nurture the happiness and well-being of one's life.  Recently, in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, a new member of our family has laid down their "roots" (pun intended).  A local, family-oriented Chiropractic office, started by Dr. & Mrs. Tom and Lauren Williams, has chosen to dedicate their practice to form an extended family of local residents by connecting their community with a multi-faceted approach to wellness via chiropractic care.  Fortunately for Ellipsis, we were asked to join that family early in their development to assist them in realizing the vision for their space and their new practice.

Waiting Area

Waiting Area

Working within - and in support of - the company's strong brand message, the goal was to design a space that was simple, fresh, comfortable and approachable; a space where patients and the community they had begun to build would feel at home. This translated into an earthy color palette with clean materials, and a clear delineation between social spaces and treatment spaces.
