Decen­trali­zation, off the shelf.

Decentralized technologies enable alternative applications that challenge the traditional models: where government and corporate control are causing harm, decentralized technologies have the potential to bring about autonomy, resilience, and equity.

However, there is a significant gap between the protocols that define the decentralization space and the applications that users want to adopt. Through a series of interviews and focus groups with technology designers and builders, we have identified 7 areas where projects can improve their own practice; where targeted research is necessary; and where funders can enable collaborative innovations.

One of the missing aspects are tools that developers and designers can use to understand how to build applications. We are now producing a library of resources, assets, and patterns to support the design and development of better user-facing applications that are backed by decentralized architecture.

We give talks and facilitate invite-only workshops, focus groups, and conference gatherings about decentralization! To get notified when we release new resources and get invited to events, sign up for our newsletter.

Need design help?

We are looking for partners and collaborators to workshop user experience and architecture patterns. By addressing the specific needs and challenges of your project, we can also learn valuable lessons that would apply to the community as a whole. The design work we do will feed into the production of our pattern library.
