In 2001, a group of designers from AIGA, Design for Democracy launched an initiative to re-enfranchise” voters through design. Cheyenne Medina and Gretchen Schulfer worked to redesign and improve the voting experience for US elections as part of the initiative from 2001 – 2006. Projects included redesigned ballots and information for voters; guidelines for navigating a polling place; behind the scenes poll worker administration material; and national models for the Election Assistance Commission. Cheyenne Medina and Gretchen Schulfer are currently working on new initiatives to demonstrate the importance of design in science, education, business and sustainability.
