Everyone knows that New Orleans is the home of some of the best music in the world. What if it were also home to the best system for supporting musicians?
At the Clinton Global Initiative in 2011, Insight Labs Dean Jeff Leitner pledged to undertake a project to benefit the musicians of New Orleans. The pledge was fulfilled at the second annual UX for Good event, where the Labs convened some of the nation’s top user-experience designers to help out the people who make the Big Easy what it is.
Designers from Twitter, Google, Manifest Digital, Obama for America, and a variety of other organizations fanned out through the city, interviewing musicians, DJs, record producers, club owners, and anyone else with a stake in the city’s music culture. Then they met to design an innovative set of solutions to the city’s challenges.
