The Engagement Lab is an applied research and design lab dedicated to reimagining civic engagement for a digital culture. We find new ways for communities to bring their voice forward, and new ways for institutions to respond. We work with partners to co-design solutions to the most pressing problems in democracy and governance, including participation gaps, gender or racial discrimination, lack of basic media literacies, youth exclusion, and gaps in public health practices. Our research and practice are influenced by the fields of media studies, communications, human centered design, and cultural studies. I started work with EL as a freelance designer in 2012, was quickly hired as their full-time lead GD and then in 2013, became their Art Director. I oversee all aesthetic decisions, including branding for the company and each of its projects, design direction and asset creation, direction of interns and their projects, space design, publications, web design, etc.
