As we approach the upcoming November election, the role of design and experience will once again take center stage. The ballot design fiasco of the 2000 election taught us that the ramifications of design decisions can be profound, so for this Core77 1 Hour Design Challenge, we invite designers to submit design solutions for the "voting booth." Designs submitted can include both voting machines and environments, but we are looking for strong concepts that explore the way we vote, where we vote.
HOW TO ENTER:
Participants must execute their design in only 1 hour, based on an honor system. Upload images and a brief text description of your design to the designated discussion forum.
Winners will be selected by Jessica Helfand and William Drenttel of Winterhouse, creators of The Polling Place Photo Project
(now a New York Times project) and founding editors of Design Observer
. Community discussion is encouraged to help ensure that the best designs win.
Judging will be based on quality of presentation, strength of concept, and ambition of idea.
1st prize will receive a gift basket from Winterhouse, including homemade maple syrup, t-shirt, a copy of Design For Democracy, and other special surprises. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be featured in the Core77 November Newsletter and on the Core77 Blog.
