Civic design focuses on the common good, and no one quite sums up just how vital that is to our local communities than this week’s guest, Sabrina Dorsainvil. As the director of civic design for the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics in Boston, MA, she uses her skills as a designer and illustrator to develop strategic, human-centered designs that address some of the city’s most complex issues.
Of course, I was fascinated to learn more about this, so Sabrina described what civic design is about, how she approaches new projects, and the challenges she faces creating solutions that inform and serve hundreds of thousands of people. She also gave some great advice for designers and creatives who want to get more involved in their local communities, and even talked about her work as a design advisor for NY-based design studio designing the WE. Sabrina attributes trusting her passion as her main motivator for success, and I think you’ll get inspired from hearing more about her story and her work!
