Small Claims Mediation: The Basic Process Flow

For a class on Online Dispute Resolution at Stanford, I am on a small team working to build an online mediation system for a local county court. Its budget was slashed and can no longer afford to provide in-person mediation

Safe Mathare poster design

I made this as a first draft of a design conference poster, explaining our group’s project “Safe Mathare.”  In the second draft, the goal is to edit down the text + get more image-narrative carrying through.  It is remarkably hard

Istanbul Heart Collage

I am playing with collage design. This is 2 months of Turkey in one heart, I was playing with semi-transparent framing. Trying to make a composition that is cool enough to look like a movie poster.

My favorite Stanford posters

A few particularly well-designed ones, I gleaned them discretely (respectfully, after the event) from around campus. Curiously, I did not attend any of these three events.  Perhaps they were too well designed.

Good Law Information Design: Online Privacy Challenge

What about terms and conditions?  I myself have never read one, but I’ve agreed to maybe fifties, maybe hundreds of them.   A fellow U of Cer Aza Raskin (now of Mozilla) issued a call for designers to address just this.
