CUP is pleased to announce that the Making Policy Public (MPP) call for designers is now open.
CUP seeks policy-friendly design collaborators to work with advocates and experts on the next editions of MPP. MPP is CUP’s series of foldout posters that use graphic and information design to explore and explain complex public policy issues. We received a ton of thoughtful and interesting proposals from researchers and advocates in the first round. We are very excited to present the following groups and issues selected by our distinguished jury:
+ Keeping parks public with FIERCE
+ Participating in public housing with Community Voices Heard
+ Redistricting reform with the Brennan Center for Justice
+ Navigating the juvenile justice system with the Center for Court Innovation
+ Mapping the tomato supply chain with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and Just Harvest USA

We are now seeking statements of interest and portfolios from potential design collaborators. Applicants chosen through the juried submission process receive full attribution, rights to reproduction, publicity through CUP, and an honorarium of $1,000. The deadline for applications is August 20, 2009.
