Smart Citizen is an NGO based in Santiago, Chile, which seeks to reduce inequality in Latin America by promoting transparency and citizen participation through the innovative use of information technology. I was their Design Lead for 4 years.
There’s no doubt SmartCitizen holds a special place in my heart. It’s the place where I first discovered my love for interactions on the web, where I learned to code, and where I learned the value of working with extremely talented, and passionate people.
As Design Lead I was in charge of art direction, organizing the Design Team and coordinating the front-end development with the DevTeam. During those 4 years I was involved in over 15 projects –some of them are included below. For more information you can visit CiudadanoInteligente.org
The main challenge of the project was to clearly convey the function of the site and the spirit of the project to tech savvy civic hackers and
non-tech savvy NGO leaders looking for tech help.
Collaboration on infographics with Catalina Margozzini and Katherina Malis.
My responsibilities included: Art direction, branding and merchandising region-wise.
Information architecture, UI design and theme development for all participant countries to use (WordPress).
Acceso Inteligente was the first one-stop shop for online Freedom of Information (FOI) requests in Chile.
