What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Design as a public service
June 27, 6:30pm - 8:00pm EDT. Hosted at NAVA (NYC)
About this FieldTrip
Working as a designer in the public sector means that you don’t get to pick your customers—your target market is everyone. The products you build can’t afford to ignore edge cases, because doing so could mean a senior citizen not having access to healthcare, or a family unable to afford food. For these designers, edge cases are the work.
Join Nava Public Benefit Corporation for an intimate conversation with Shanti Mathew, Deputy Director at Public Policy Lab, Mollie Ruskin, Founding Designer of the United States Digital Service, and Eddie A Tejeda, Director of Federalist at 18F, about the ethical choices designers working in the public interest face.
Nava PBC uses human-centered design practices to improve how government serves everyone. We partner with federal and state government agencies to build government services that are simple, effective, and accessible to all.
