The MIT Center for Civic Media works hand in hand with diverse communities to collaboratively create, design, deploy, and assess civic media tools and practices. Over the years, we’ve enjoyed working on projects that range from distributing our DiscoTech model to planning the Allied Media Conference Media Lab.
When MIT approached us to design a website for its collaborative design (or “co-design”) toolkit, we enthusiastic to pitch in! Toolkits? Collaborative process design? Resource distribution? A great match.
We began the process by developing fun, visual iconography to explain the principles behind co-design.
Working closely with faculty, staff, and students, we constructed the site architecture, workflow, and theme to make the process and resources accessible.
The new website offers a special opportunity—it’s a living archive of student projects, community resources, process guides, theory, and even links to toolkits made by others.
