Last week I gave a presentation on Design and Advocacy for the Health Media Initiative at the Open Society Institute. The meeting was for an HMI fellows program which allows Parsons‘ design students to travel to OSI public health grantee organizations and assist them in creating outreach and advocacy materials.
The goal of my presentation was to introduce the students to advocacy strategy and give some examples of advocacy design. I chose some international examples featured on DigiActive and some from the Obama campaign. I had great fun giving the presentation (above) and meeting the fellows. I wish them lots of luck as they head out into the field this summer.
UPDATE: Just got an e-mail from the folks at SlideShare saying they’d featured this presentation on their homepage 🙂
