A Model SideClick in Jurica

By Erin, SCF intern

Federico Hernandez-Ruiz has recently become a SideClick for his neighborhood in Jurica, Queretaro, Mexico. Throughout his career, Federico always asked himself how his work could impact the lives of people around him. Now, he's using SeeClickFix to do just that.

Having been a graphic designer for 20 years, Hernandez-Ruiz founded the company Asimetagraf and now specializes in design thinking. Similarly, he serves as a consultant for the AssocaciĆ³n Colonos de Jurica Campestre AC. A non-profit organization, it uses design to generate change and create a positive environment for the public.

After hearing about SeeClickFix through technology conferences and podcasts, Federico started using our site to help his organization achieve these community goals. With SeeClickFix, community members in Jurica can report issues directly to the association through
the widget embedded on their site. Similarly, the organization features direct links to the SeeClickFix website on their blog, and even have dedicated employees that follow up with every issue submitted. Jurica residents have responded with enthusiasm and have already started seeing significant improvements in their neighborhoods.

SeeClickFix would like to recognize Mr. Hernandez-Ruiz for embracing his role as a SideClick, and for creating positive change in his neighborhood.
