Mission

Our goal is to build a community of students and practitioners dedicated to building a future for journalism that isn’t dictated by corporate PR, wealthy individuals, or government spin.

Good design begins with understanding who you’re designing for, and why. That mindset can help us forge a new, participatory journalism that puts the people we serve first. Call it human-centered journalism.

Design can help us understand the complex media ecosystem in which we’re operating, so we can produce journalism that holds its own there.

Journalism + Design is a place for playful experimentation, where new forms and unexpected strategies will emerge.
