Improving Civic Projects by Engaging People Online

Urban Interactive Studio’s digital engagement tools support outreach and participation in projects that improve our communities.

Our suite of apps creates productive, intuitive opportunities for community input—at home, at work, or on the go.

Our Philosophy


Civic projects are complicated but effective participation requires an understanding of the challenges at hand. We design online activities that help participants understand topics, tradeoffs and opportunities.


Every consultation and every project phase has different public input needs. Our software is designed to support your project from start to finish, fostering engagement and dialogue every step of the way.


Today, changing communication preferences require us to meet our audiences where it’s convenient for them. Our solutions are optimized for any device to reach people at home, at work or on-the-go.

We believe digital engagement should be defined by your project goals, not dictated by inflexible software. Our free Discovery Sessions will help you shape your approach and identify solutions to accomplish your goals - no strings attached.
