Faciliating Online Engagement About Complex Issues
Des Moines, Iowa
Our team designed and built a unique public engagement tool and interactive web game, called DesignMyDSM, for Greater Des Moines' The Tomorrow Plan. I led the UI/UX and visual design of the application, and managed the content development process. DesignMyDSM launched in April 2012, and is online at DesignMyDSM.
DesignMyDSM garnered about 1000 responses from Greater Des Moines stakeholders during the 8 week period when we were gathering data, and also saw visitors from around 20 other states. With the support of PlaceMatters, we later developed the concept framework from DesignMyDSM into and open-source framework called CrowdGauge.
Early brainstorming with the team.
