America Elect

A few months ago I had the pleasure of talking with Andrew Kim, a designer who over the course of the last year got a lot of (well deserved) attention for a project he did proposing a massive redesign for Microsoft.

His latest project, America Elect, was to take a designers eye to the American electoral system. It's a fascinating look at updating a system that is kind of vestigial - in the sense that since the shift to voting by mail, we haven't really looked at changing ballot design (and in some cases are just filling out the same kind of old ballots).

It's a really beautiful project, and I have a feeling this won't be the last time we see some big ideas from him.
