Nexy tokens

A flexible story telling tool used in co-design workshops to facilitate community input to infrastructure resource planning

The Nexy tokens are used in community co-design workshops as a preliminary tool for participants to explore opportunities for new infrastructure in their location.  

The hexagonal design and visual language of the icons facilitate flexibility and creativity in the generation of “stories” of resource use at the nexus of water, energy, food and waste.

The hexagonal blocks are cut from acrylic and stamped using re-usable rubber stamps and non-permanent ink. This means you can wipe off the image and replace it as necessary. 

Use the template for hexagonal laser cutting of acrylic (90 x 60 cm) 

Use A4 layouts for laser cutting and etching the rubber stamps. There are three layouts: Layout 1, Layout 2, Layout 3. Drill magnets into the hexagonal acrylic and buy with metallic whiteboards to use with the tokens.  

Create and print photographs of the location for use with the tokens.
