Design Hacks for Civic Design: Plain Language, Accessibility, and Cross-cultural Communication

10 hours over 3 segments: December 14-16
See detailed schedule

Want to break into the field of civic design? Or make the policy you are responsible for better?  Civic design is a lot like general UX design, but with extra attention to plain language, accessibility, and cross-cultural communication. That’s because civic design is the connection between all of us and government or other civic services, so no one can be left out. Civic design is also based in policy, so even if we can’t change the basic rules, we can still make those complicated policies human. Whitney Quesenbery, co-founder and director of the Center for Civic Design will be your guide through the workshop as the entire CCD team takes you through the core civic design hacks.
