Touching the State

Touching the state is a publication by the Design Council. Despite the paper being a few years old it is still highly relevant.

It asks the question: “What does it mean to be a citizen in the 21st century?” By looking specifically at voting, jury service and the new citizenship ceremony this project questions “Can these encounters be designed differently to increase engagement and sense of citizenship?”

The paper is a fantastic demonstration of how to visually convey design enhancing relationships.
