In a fragmented media landscape of “alternative facts,” disputed science, and larger-than-life personalities, what’s a designer (or citizen) to do? To create, we often talk about things like “funnels, leads, hits, conversions, engagement,” but rarely pause to ask what role our products play in the greater digital ecosystem. How can we design (or consume) digital products in a way that supports our growth, both as individuals and as a society?
