The Studio partners with agencies to deliver projects informed by a service design approach. Designing for Opportunity pairs the Studio’s designers with New York City government agencies and offices for 6-12 months to work together on addressing challenges faced by low-to-moderate income New Yorkers. In January of 2018, the Studio ran an “open call for partnerships” to ask City agencies and offices to propose projects to work together on. The Studio created a campaign to promote the open call including a website, information packet, application form, and presentation decks. The Studio received 15 “Designing for Opportunity” proposals from nine agencies and offices. Primary themes in the proposals included access to services, youth services, housing, health, and education.
