The Field Guides, originally funded by a Kickstarter project, are designed to be quick, easy, accessible help for American election officials to do the best possible design. She won 2 MacArthur grants to expand the Field Guides Series. She wrote Handbook of Usability Testing, Second Edition with Jeff Rubin. She’s a co-founder of the Center for Civic Design with Whitney Quesenbery, which has loaned her to the United States Digital Service.
