Making Policy Public Call for Designers

Making Policy PublicCUP is seeking designers for the next issues of Making Policy Public. They are looking for designers who are interested in using communication design to illuminate pressing issues of our day. Designers chosen through the juried submission process will receive full attribution for their work, an honorarium of $1000, and publicity through CUP. CUP will manage the design process and provide design support as needed.

Making Policy Public uses innovative graphic design to explore and explain public policy. Each publication is the product of a commissioned collaboration between a designer and an advocate. This series aims to make information on public policy truly public: accessible, meaningful, and shared. Designers can engage social issues without sacrificing experimentation.

They seek designers with an interest in research and public policy who would welcome the opportunity to engage in a deep collaboration with an advocate or policy researcher. They are looking for designers who will bring unique solutions to the design challenges presented by the topic. Applicants must be able to attend meetings in New York City. Applicants from any discipline, professional status, or age are eligible.

Proposals must be received by June 16, 2008, no later than midnight. To apply, visit www.makingpolicypublic.net.

The Cargo Chain, the most recent issue of Making Policy Public, is an organizing tool for longshore workers that shows the players and pressure points in today’s globalized shipping network. The publication was produced through a collaboration between the Longshore Workers Coalition, Labor Notes (a quarterly journal of labor journalism and research), cartographer Bill Rankin, and the graphic design office Thumb. The first issue of Making Policy Public, Social Security Risk Machine, describes how the Social Security System manages risk on the scale of a society. This publication was written by Sam Stark and designed by David Reinfurt and Damon Rich.

The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) is a nonprofit organization that helps people understand and change the places they live. To learn more about CUP, visit www.anothercupdevelopment.org.

Making Policy Public is funded in part by New York State Council on the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Diane Middleton Foundation, and the Brooklyn Arts Council.
