The civil right to participate is unfortunately not a reality for everyone. In Switzerland we have it. Why don’t we use it? 

"Meine Damen und Herren" is the project of a magazine supplement about upcoming votes in Switzerland, made for people who don't get why it is important. The core mission of the project is to use the potential of design to shape an image of politics that makes young people want to participate in votes and society’s questions.

The business concept including first prototypes were developed during the Master of Art in Design at Bern University of the Arts between 2016 and 2018. The long-term vision has two parts: a continuing research activity in the field of Design and Political Communication and the further development of the concept until its official release. I am open for collaboration and funding proposals.
