While nonprofits compete for attention in a saturated digital market, our clients are asking us how to stay relevant. Through trial and error we’ve learned that complex interactive design projects structured in a few days can produce highly effective results. During this presentation, we’ll share case studies and project methods on how to create interactive pieces for teams on tight time and budget constraints. We’ll explore processes and mindsets essential in running and/or participating in your own sprint that can turn 20 pages of research or an annual report into an interactive experience that will leave an impression on your audience, and help to generate a lasting impression.
