We work with advocates and communities to design creative legal resources that engage, inform, and mobilize.

Services Offered

Democratic design

Our collaborative, community-informed design processes foster collective engagement and produce meaningful, effective resources.

Creative communication

We use all kinds of visual tools—including comics, illustrations, typography, and motion graphics—to make legal concepts clear and engaging.

Adaptable outputs

Social media graphics, print materials, web assets, animated videos—we tailor the format of our resources to meet the needs of each community we work alongside.

Pay what you can

Our sliding scale fee system ensures that we can partner with advocates and communities with a variety of needs and resources.

With good design, things changed.
