The Service Design Studio at the New York City Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity is the first-ever municipal service design studio focused on improving services for low-income residents. The Studio's team of creative strategists partners with public servants at New York City agencies and offices to integrate the voices of the people who use, deliver, and administer public services into the design of programs and policy.
Design Lead Tim Reitzes will introduce you to the Studio, and its unique role inside New York City government. You’ll hear about the different ways that the Studio is working with City agency partners to improve the design and delivery of government services, take a deep dive on one of the Studio's Designing for Opportunity projects, and learn why working in government is the perfect challenge for designers looking to have a real positive impact.
