PUBLIC SERVICE & CIVIC MEDIA DUTY

A CALL TO ACTION

We believe that civics and public service will continue to transition at quantum speeds, becoming more open to participation through media, and technology, even as traditional government institutions suffer from increasing public mistrust. We design and develop constituent experiences - tools, products, services and spaces - for social change through participatory practices that ensures civics are more fair and inclusive.

Designed By Us and the Design Corps pursues an produces public works that use modern public service design and civic media methods to build constituent experiences that amplify the voices of communities excluded from equal and equitable participation in the public sphere.

VISIONARY INTENT

HOPE IS NOT MAGIC. IT'S WORK.

Earth's problems and business problems are inherently linked. Each riddle, presents us with an opportunity to challenge the unknown, complex and entangled with an unrelenting bias for learning, invention and action from people with purpose. 

I founded Designed By Us as an inclusive action learning lab that trains and places designers, multi-media creators and technologists at the front lines of public service and civic life. United with local and national policy makers, activists and constituents we dare to create public works that transform human life for the next 100 years.

DESTINY DESIGNED,TODAY.

EXPLORING POSSIBILITIES  
IN PROBLEM SOLVING

We focus on solving humanity’s most challenging problems by leading the way in data intelligence and collective understanding  as humanity enters the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Exploration begins with ground breaking research and design techniques that employ imaginative narratives as visions of the future, speculative experimentation and design that probe viability of building many worlds linked by the collective liberation, ecological and economic sustainability. Armed with emerging quantum and AI-driven technologies we chart a journey to make those narratives real.

WE DON'T RUN FROM EARTH'S PROBLEMS, WE RUN TOWARDS THEM.

In addition to creating inventions and solutions for communities, governments, social benefit businesses and Fortune 500 CEOS, Designed By Us is driven to make technology oriented towards improving the health of spaceship earth and its inhabitants. From climate change and cybersecurity to smart cities, disaster relief, space design and astropreneurship, the Design Corps are humanitarians with S.T.E.A.M.D. super powers working to link emerging business models to the infrastructure needed to help design effective systems that are regenerative by design.
