Hi Product Hunters! Back story: Iโ€™m tired of myself talking about making products but never. So Iโ€™m committing to make 1 minimum viable product per month, starting Feb 2018. Iโ€™ll keep going till I run out of ideas or money, or something takes off in a huge way that requires all my time, or exhaustion kicks in. Whichever comes first. More about #1mvp1month here: So for my 2nd MVP, Iโ€™m launching Public Design Vault, a curated directory of 500+ design tools and resources for public good, all in one place. It's like Startup Stash meets design meets government. This is in line with my passion and purpose of making products at the intersection of design, social/public issues and indie maker/entrepreneurship. Why make Public Design Vault? As a designer myself, I often fall back on the usual suspects of tools and methods when working on projects with my clients (mostly government organisations). While itโ€™s great for expediency and quality, things can feel pretty stagnant after a while. I realised that Iโ€™m also missing out on new learning opportunities of best practices available out there if I always keep to a tried and tested approach. Yet it takes too much effort to seek out new inspiration from so many sources scattered across the vast universe of the internet. The last thing you want to do when on a tight project timeline is to get lost in the internet time sink! What if there was this one-stop place online where I can just do a quick scan of the array of tools available for the design phase that Iโ€™m in? This site is as much as for myself as for others in my situation โ€“ to help me easily find new inspiration on tools for my project, and ultimately, be a better design thinker. The good thing about this site is that these resources are not restricted to experienced practitioners. Folks who are new to design thinking will probably find this even more useful! More about why and how I made the site here: Iโ€™d love to hear if this is useful for you, why or why not? Honest feedback is how I like to take it, so please fire away. Especially shouting out to the designers and developers here who are working for government and public good, your feedback and questions would be much appreciated! :)
looks cool)))
@fabianquentin thanks! ๐Ÿ‘
Good work @JasonLeowsg! How might you rearrange the collections using the jobs-to-be-done approach or other human-centered roadmaps?
@be_creatv interesting question. ๐Ÿค” Why did you ask? Is it because the current arrangement is sub-optimal for you in some way? How and why so?
