Representations

tool description

The group sketching is a quick, fast and economic tool for developing and explaining ideas simultaneously. It is used during the co-design sessions in order to share the insights inside the team: this tool offers a common ground for the discussion even when the participants have different cultural and social backgrounds.
It is based on basic and simple drawings in order to encourage the participation of everybody.

DEMOCRACY, WHAT CONSULTANTS THINK OF MPs

Design Council

The observation of the public confidence and trust in politicians and political institutions in UK shows that there is a strong level of alienation towards politicians, especially towards MPs.
Design Council developed this project in order to understand which practical things MPs could do in their constituency to rebuild democracy in Britain.
After the observation, MPs have been engaged with their constituents to understand their needs and spot opportunities to make a difference. During one of these workshops a young group of constituents was asked to design the perfect MP, using sketches to share ideas and represent the final solution.
