Using design workbooks

Design workbooks or journals are valuable tools in generating ideas and documenting design work. They are useful throughout the Journalism Design process but particularly in the early stages of Discover and Imagine.

We are interested in using interaction design to propose new ways of for communicating and interacting with news and information that is in the public interest.
