thinking to increase civic participation by making interactions between
the U.S. government and its citizens more understandable, efficient and
trustworthy. Independent, pragmatic and committed to the public good,
Design for Democracy collaborates with researchers, designers and
policy-makers in service of public sector clients and AIGA’s goal of
“demonstrating the value of design by doing valuable things.”
and election design
Since 2000, Design for Democracy’s ballot and election design project has worked to make voting easier and more accurate for all U.S. citizens. Recent accomplishments include the “Field Guides To Ensuring Voter Intent” to help county election officials design ballots, write instructions for voters, test ballots
for usability and create effective poll worker materials.
Out the Vote
Every four years AIGA invites members to create nonpartisan posters and videos to inspire the American public to vote. All posters from AIGA’s 2012 Get Out the Vote campaign are available online in PDF format for you to download,
print and hang in your town, and we encourage you to share video and poster
entries with your friends, colleagues and social networks.
