City Design Methods – The Mobile App

Coming Fall 2016 – the best of city design – organized, visual, and shareable – all on your phone and tablet.  Here is what we are building for you.

Last March we launched a Kickstarter campaign to develop City Design Method Cards (print and mobile app). As the campaign unfolded, we realized we could build the mobile app ourselves for far less money than our target. We also realized we focused on the product more than what users need in an app and in Method Cards. They told us to refine a couple of things – so we are.

We cancelled the Kickstarter to work full time on the app (see 4 minute video tour on YouTube here).  Here is where you come in:

Building the app – See our Writers’ Guide on how you can promote your work & great city design.  This Writers’ Guide guide details:
(1) An overview of the app, it’s value proposition, benefits & features,
(2) How to contribute your content, images, attributions (list of topics on pages 7 & 8)
(3) The running list of topics & methods for design, and
(4) Submitting a Method & getting the most out of your write-ups on the app.
