Vote 2020: Designing for Democracy
It’s almost here. One of the most important elections in U.S. history. And no matter where you stand on the political spectrum, I think we all (or most of us) agree that one of the biggest things we can do to show up as designers is to get out there, vote, and inspire others to participate and make sure their votes are counted.
At Trollbäck, we believe in democracy, progress, and building brighter futures. That’s why we’re giving our staff an open platform over the next 12 days to showcase their views, creativity, and personal calls-to-action right here on our website. Check back through election day on November 3rd for a growing feed full of inspiring, shareable election day graphics.
We’ll also be compiling a rolling list of 2020 election day action items below. Want your effort or organization amplified? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
