A Better Ballot Box
On Tuesday, November 14 Dean C. Logan and Matt Adams of IDEO were special guests at A/D/O in Brooklyn. A/D/O is a 23,000 square foot former warehouse in Greenpoint, Brooklyn’s Industrial Business Zone. It has been converted into a space for creative exchange and designers. The presentation entitled “A Better Ballot Box” was moderated by Rachel Abrams of Arup and focused on examining the intersection of design and current events and the impact of design on local government. The event drew local design enthusiasts who had the opportunity to demo the ballot marking device on site. The hour-long discussion included remarks by both Dean Logan and Matt Adams that focused on the manufacturing phase of the new ballot marking device and the importance of human-centered design in the public sector. The audience response was overwhelmingly positive and many expressed excitement to see the full implementation in the years to come.
