  • I think this is a trend that is starting to pick-up (or at least I hope it is) — stores offering discounts or incentives when you donate used goods.

    Two major retailers offering a good program:

    Kiehls

    Bring in an empty used container from their products to recycle and receive free new products in return. The more you bring in the larger your gift becomes. Bring in 3 empty containers and get a tube of lip gloss, or bring it 10 containers and you get to pick out any product (less that $25) for free.

    Timberland Shoes

    Visit a Timberland store to donate a used pair of shoes and you'll get 10% off a new pair of Timberlands. Timberland is partnering with Soles4Souls, who donates shoes to those who need them.

    Felt_177_

    There are two shows currently on view at the Cooper-Hewitt right now that I really think everyone who can should go see: Fashioning Felt and Design for a Living World.

    Fashioning Felt is the first that you will encounter upon entering the museum. I hadn't really seen anything made with felt before that I actually wanted...until now. I want EVERYTHING on display there, including a beautiful jacket made entirely from the process of heating pieces of felt together — no sewing required.

    I would also be happy to live in the modern adaptation of a yurt, Palace Yurt Installation by Janice Arnold. This is a room fabricated of hand-made felt, and is meant to be a place of celebration. It is really an amazing sight, lighting from the surrounding windows creeps in through holes in the felt and there are even benches you can sit on and relax in the space.

    The part that impressed me the most was how incredible felt is in general as a material. It can be made entirely from recycled materials, or re-made into new felt after it is worn, and extremely sustainable because the sheep can live off of naturally occurring plants rather than other farm animals whose food needs to be shipped in.

    I left wondering where can I get my hands on a felting class so that I can start making things with this amazing material.

    Upstairs you will find Design for a Living World. Ten influential designers were selected to create pieces based on a location specific sustainable material they were assigned ...

  • Hello all,

    Communication, Fashion Design

    Designers needed as small business partners.... to design clothes, ads., interiors....

  • So, I posted this to my wordpress blog but I thought I would put it up here with a different spin....

    The guy dancing here was dancing by himself pretty much for 10 minutes before this awesome dance party erupts around him. (it is in a different video)

    He was a innovator. A visionary. A leader without followers. But he stuck to his guns and his principles. And eventually things really changed for the better.

    India's Messy Urbanism

    Like other megacities, the large cities of India are grappling with the conflicting logic of globalization and localization. As new networks of global trade and finance create new opportunities, developer-friendly architecture and planning are appropriating contemporary discourses, and producing urban forms hitherto unknown. Globalization and its influence are thus transforming the city as physical, social, and cultural boundaries are being renegotiated.

    1logo_international_festival_of_cultural_diversity_177_

    this is my logo for the IFCD competition, generating a typographic solution, the logo searches equilibrium between the event formality and the artistic expressions exhilaration. It is a presentation of the whole society, but not of any nation in particular. It also makes evident some cultural differences, but at the same time there is a manifestation of social integration.

Design and designers can make a significant contribution towards a better and more sustainable society
