On May 10-11 at UNICEF NYHQ we invited designers and engineers who have worked with us to discuss UNICEF, the design process, and recommendations for future design collaborations.
UNICEF needs methods for iterative and flexible design contracting; we can’t always know what the end result will look like.
UNICEF would benefit from understanding and discussion of the design process before embarking on projects.
We need to work with open-source designers and engineers so that whatever we pay to have produced is public domain.
“Research” and “development” need to happen with end users, in the field.
