                Prototype of OpenVote, a portable kit with which users can rapidly design and create posters urging peers to vote in the 2018 midterm elections and spark bipartisan discussion about American politics. I designed the kit and planned the prototyping event with Lauren Fox and professor Enrique von Rohr.

            Above — We conducted a poster-making workshop with the Office for Socially Engaged Practice in order to test out the prototype of our kit. Lauren, Enrique, the participants and I had a lot of fun working with the stencils, markers, and colored papers, and we learned a lot about the way that users wanted to engage with this service.   
            Below — I designed this print as the primary jumping off point for the branding of our kit at a risograph printing workshop with Riso Hell. When we first began brainstorming ideas for the branding, Lauren and I wanted to evoke a dialogue between red and blue in a way that mimicked the bipartisan dialogue we hoped to create with the poster kit itself.
