From the confusing
butterfly ballots of the 2000 presidential election in Palm Beach
County, Florida to the misaligned punch card layouts of Cuyahoga County,
Ohio just four years later, design counts in our elections. Design
for Democracy: Ballot and Election Design illustrates real
solutions that are poised to improve elections across the country in
2008 and beyond.
The long-awaited book by Marcia Lausen, a founding member
of the AIGA strategic initiative Design for Democracy,
is an essential advocacy tool for designers and election officials,
lawmakers and citizens. Design for Democracy: Ballot and Election
Design harnesses the power of design to increase voter confidence,
promote government transparency and create an informed—and
empowered—electorate. Its prototypes and recommendations have already
been used successfully in major Illinois and Oregon elections and are
fundamental to AIGA Design for Democracy’s 2007 ballot and polling place design guidelines on behalf of the U.S. Election
Assistance Commission (EAC).
The book is a co-publication of University
of Chicago Press and AIGA.
Every piece of art is a story waiting to be uncovered. The ads aimed to make the exhibition—which explores contemporary artists’ interests in history, archaeology and archival research—accessible to the general public.

Nepal is vulnerable to large earthquakes and is one of the poorest
countries in the world. The challenge is to
bring seismic resilience to as many buildings as possible by building
awareness and implementation strategies; in partnership with Kids of Kathmandu, Inscape Publico is working toward an 'Earthquake Safe Communities by 2020' goal.
