Design Discourse: Design for Democracy
The way we vote — and the ways that candidates try to earn our votes — are all products of design processes. In this lecture + discussion.
Join us as MODA’s Assistant Director, Lisa Babb, gives an overview of the design work that goes into getting our vote. We’ll talk about what works and what doesn’t — and how design is influencing us, even when we don’t know it’s happening.
Among the topics to be discussed are:
The design of the voting booth
Designing political campaigns
Ballot design & the infamous “hanging chads”
Designing the voter experience
The Hope campaign that changed the world
Make America Great campaign that changed it again
The famous H campaign (again)
The exclamation that promises to change it all yet again
