Designing Policy toolkit

IIT Institute of Design (ID) is a graduate design school with a history of innovation. ID pioneered the development and dissemination of modern design from its founding in 1937 as the New Bauhaus in Chicago. Today, our graduate design school focuses on global challenges. We prepare designers to take on the worlds complex, fast-changing, and unpredictable problems such as competitiveness, digital media and learning, health and wellbeing, and social innovation.

Co/Act

Human-centered design frameworks start by identifying who a product is for and then placing them at the center of the product strategy. The Co/Act toolkit adapts and expands this approach to design digital products, services, or campaigns through modular do-it-yourself style activities that are aggressively low cost, high impact, interdisciplinary, and focused on building the capacity of participants. Co/Act will help you design more powerful products, services, and campaigns by centering them on your community, stakeholders, and colleagues - ensuring that the end result is more inclusive and therefore democratic.
