Ester Soto & Ana Vicencio, Research, Content Architecture, and Curation of Promises
Jalisco Cómo Vamos (JCV) launched this initiative in fall 2016 to track campaign promises by the Mayors of two Guadalajara Metropolitan Area municipalities: Enrique Alfaro from Guadalajara and Pablo Lemus from Zapopan. This was the last project I was involved in as Communications Manager at JCV.
ICON DESIGN: THE TWO MAYORS
CONCEPTUALIZATION AND STRATEGY
My colleagues Ester and Ana were in charge of curating, grouping, and measuring the campaign promises in a uniform, cohesive way. They tracked the promises (30 for Guadalajara mayor, 31 for the Zapopan mayor) with measures or indicators of progress (113 for the Guadalajara mayor, 91 for the Zapopan Mayor), grouped by seven topics (“axes”). Each promise and measure was vetted by the mayors themselves as well as representatives from private/social-sector organizations. The picture below is an exploration of the visual output of this structure sketched by Ana.
