responsible design

Write a list of 10 things that are important to you. Keep referring to this list.

Identify one or more of the following:
Something you see in everyday life that could be more efficient
Wastefullness that could be avoided
Something that is complex that could be made easier understand

For the next project, you are going to come up with a design solution that shows responsibility. It should mean something to you. It should have a positive social impact on society. It should use minimal resources (keeping sustainability in mind).

The most important part of this project is the idea. The challenge is coming up with what format it will take. Print? Web? iPhone App? Guerilla campaign? Stickers? What is the most effective format for delivery?

Due next class:
Present your idea(s), show sketches (by hand or digital). Share research you’ve done around your idea.
