UX for Good: New Orleans

Redesigning social services for musicians

Foossa's Lee-Sean Huang served as one of the user experience designers for UX for Good 2012

UX for Good is a wildly ambitious effort to design systemic solutions for some of the most vexing social challenges. Top user experience designers convene to tackle problems that matter in the only design event of its kind. Assisting the designers are leading philanthropic change makers and some of the most interesting, creative thinkers we can find.
In May 2012, we convened leading user experience designers from across the U.S. to construct models to address two big problems facing the New Orleans music community: adapting its unique artistic mix to the digital economy and ensuring support for musicians who fall on hard times. Partnering with The Grammys and MusiCares, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative, the UX designers' unique skills and perspective were leveraged to advance the greater good - ensuring music remains an abundant and treasured resource in this great American city.
