We worked with the communications and design team of DBM (Department of Budget and Management) for this years People’s Budget. It was really nice working with them as they were very open to our ideas and design direction.

From DBM:
"For the past months, the national Budget has been pushed to the forefront of the Filipino’s collective consciousness. But really, how does the national government allocate each and every centavo from our taxpayers? 

In the latest version of the People’s Budget, we illustrate the steps in creating and implementing the national Budget every year. ”

If usability engineers designed a nightclub, it would be clean, quiet, brightly lit, with lots of places to sit down, plenty of bartenders, menus written in 18-point sans-serif, and easy-to-find bathrooms. But nobody would be there. They would all be down the street at Coyote Ugly pouring beer on each other.
