Simple Actions: creative days to tackle orphan design projects
The Simplification Centre organises occasional hack days, also known as design jams. Designers, writers and students come together to work on ideas for improving important information design projects that no one seems to own, or which never seem to get better: parking regulations and tenancy agreements were the first two. This presentation will describe the hack days and show some of the outcomes.
