About this event

The City of Atlanta is installing at least 10 e-ink based signs on sidewalks to help turn Atlanta into a Smart City, but in order to make the signs as effective as possible, we need your help. In this workshop, we will equip participants with tools and resources to design their vision for what an ideal Soofa Sign should look like.
