As an exemplar of personal design, the Roger Brown Study Collection is a partner on Everyone's a Designer/Everyone's Design.

Everyone’s a Designer/Everyone’s Design foregrounds the role played by everyday Chicagoans in the history of art and design in the city covering the period from 1871–2000. Through a photography exhibition, oral histories, and live public programs, ordinary Chicagoans show how they've used personal design to create extraordinary homes.
