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 Tejada, 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.
