The 2013 design sprint is in the books!
With the help of our sponsors, Thinkso rebranded Dawn, a DC-based nonprofit, in one day. While our production partners finish their work, here's a quick look at some of the highlights. Check back soon for the full case study!
In the deaf community, the incidence of violence is much higher than the national average, affecting an estimated 1 in 2 deaf women and 1 in 6 deaf men. DAWN was founded to address this important issue in the Washington, DC, area, home to one of the largest deaf communities in the world. We have already served over 300 survivors directly, responded to countless hotline calls, and referred survivors to many services including legal counseling, emergency safe housing, and forensic rape examinations.
