Politips

I built a site to promote inclusivity and prepare citizens for the new change in American government.

When:
NOVEMBER 2016
What:
VISUAL AND INTERACTION DESIGNER

Background:

In November 2016, when Donald Trump defied many projections to become the President-elect, the reaction was an uncharted one, as many were uncertain of the state of their civil rights, which ran the gamut from LGBT+ rights to reproductive rights to immigration. The good news was that there were resources and support groups out there should one know where to look, but the bad news was that these weren't immediately translatable to actionable steps.




Final Product:

My solution was a crowdsourced responsive mobile website called Politips, using Google Docs as a CMS/backend.

Users have the option to toggle between languages, as shown below:



Once a user selects their issues of interest, the site generates a list of actionable items, categorized by the issues selected. The list can be emailed, printed, or shared for the users’ safekeeping.

Mobile (User Flow)


Desktop (User Flow)


Process:

I wanted to create an informative product that was simple, intuitive, and accessible, as users would be accessing the site through their mobile (and in lesser cases, desktop) browsers.


Docs is simple to update, and the site would dynamically update as the backend document was being edited. Because policy changes can happen overnight, it is crucial to have an interface that requires little overhead and can be updated with the click of a key.
