Provoke is a new event series focused on the design of city projects. At Provoke, we'll pair talented designers with city projects that need design love. Their work will span 2-3 months, concluding with a presentation of the process and discoveries at Provoke.
Our first city project is SFCrimeData.org, a website used to provide information about neighborhood and campus safety. We paired designer Joey Golaw with the SFCrimeData team a few months ago, and they'll be presenting their work together at this session of Provoke. Note that the design work has not been implemented on the site - the team may opt to do so after it has been presented at Provoke.
The first session of Provoke will be hosted by DesignMap, an awesome design firm with a beautiful office in the Mission District.
City projects need our help and expertise. They are only as useful and effective as the effort people put into them. Join us at Provoke to learn about city projects, what they need, and how you can contribute.
