1. Finding your way to a location sometimes can be a pain in the ass. Roads broken open, one way traffic, finding parking space all examples of a horrifying roadtrip. The Civics came up with a solution for this and made a prototype and concept movie about this. The idea is basically to create a social GPS, you type in your location and everyone that's going towards that location will be shown on your GPS and visa versa. This way you can ask them to help you finding a parking space, re-route you through traffic jams by simply set your status. Your status can be: "I know the way", "I'm not sure" or "I'm lost".

  2. The Civics, who doesn’t know them? A team involved in creating a better society. In the video beneath you can watch an introduction of this team by Antanas Mockus himself, a visionaire and pioneer at the field of social change through playful impact.

We are The Civics, an design and innovation firm. But you could just say that we come up with stuff you can use. At the moment we are involved in a project called 'Playful Policy'. With our experience in the field of interaction design we try to turn 'normal' civilians into 'super' civilians. And make this world a bit better day by day. With this website we give you the possibility to follow our every step in this project.

Our team exists of four interaction designers and one Arts & Media manager.
