Touching the State: User Research and Briefs
Last night we unveiled our research to date at the Touching the State:Work in Progress event. Presentations included an overview of citizenship from Ben Rogers of ippr and excerpts of research from Acacia Avenue into citizens' experiences of jury service, voting and the new citizenship ceremony. An audience of designers planning to enter the challenge and those involved in delivering current state-citizen encounters responded to a number of design briefs to have come out of the research so far with lively debate and some great ideas.
A write-up of the proceedings will be available here shortly for those of you who missed it.
In the meantime, on the Touching the State Design Challenge page, we've uploaded:
Take a look - there's lots of rich material there to inform your contributions.
We will be uploading useful links for background projects and information as we find them, and transcripts of the interviews with the citizens are available on request.
If you haven't registered for the challenge yet, there's still plenty of time - deadline for contributions is July 19 and you can download the form here.
