High and Low in Public Sector Design

I like seeing comics being put to good use. (I’m biased. Who’d’ve guessed?) I’m also more than a little interested in effective design, whether it’s web UI or a better way to structure my garden. So anything that combines the two tends to catch my attention.

Anyway, here’s a great article on cartoon characters being used for New York recycling, and why it’s not only a cute program, but also good design.
