Our January 2012 course at the Rhode Island School of Design asks the questions, “How can complex public policy
such as the Healthcare Reform Act be communicated to the public? How can we help citizens inform themselves so that
they can make informed assessments and judgments?” Bringing their diverse visual and conceptual skills, students will
experiment with effective ways of translating a written legislative document into effective visual and graphic design that
makes the information clear, accessible and understandable.

Final project for Making It Understandable: something like 700’ of so-called fluorescent red flagging tape, on the south side of Westminster over I-95, in Providence RI. I designed three of these and installed just this one, but it’d be great to have them in lots more places. I was worried about someone stopping me, but I got nothing but positive sentiments from people crossing the bridge, from people yelling “THAT LOOKS GREAT!” out of their car windows to a man who came up to me to talk about the reform to a cyclist who said I made his day.
