    Deborah Szebeko, Founding Director of Thinkpublic has been shortlisted for the British Council’s UK Young Design Entrepreneur Award 08.

    Illustrating the power and potential of using design thinking to tackle some of the UK's greatest social issues Deborah and the team at Thinkpublic have helped make significant improvements to communications and patient experiences in the NHS.

    "We are faced with a growing amount of social challenges, including an ageing population, social exclusion and global warming to name a few. Designers need to adapt their skills to play a role in helping solving these challenges. Not by designing posters or products, but by using their skills to involve people and communities in the problem solving process. Together we can understand how we can solve these big issues and design sustainable, useful and usable solutions that work in different households, communities, regions and counties." - Deborah Szebeko.

    Alongside 5 other UK entrepreneurs Deborah has been shortlisted to the top six finalists. The winner will be announced at 100% Design, on 19th September 2008.

    La fortuna hizo que fuese nacido en Casa de Maestro, en seno de familia ilustrada (abuela Maestra, abuelo Secretario) de principios del XX. Fué Maestro mi padre y lo fueron sus otros seis hermanos, lo que me relacionó, ineludiblemente, con la enseñanza y el aprendizaje, fundamentos para la comprensión-entendimiento y el respeto.

    Obviando el anecdotario de los trayectos, recabo en puerto con equipaje sustanciado. Se ha querido que pudiese desarrollar métodos y útiles de relación que, tanto en matemática como en otras materias, pudieran denominarse como "lógicas consecutivas", que nos dan acceso a poder prever los resultados y acertar , así, en los procesos aplicables. Un ámbito novedoso para campos diversos donde discurrir como pez en el agua. ...........

    "Se nos ofreció, !un regalo!, maneras de relacionar los planos entre sí, para que pudiésemos conformar con ellos. .. ...Ahora estamos obligados a compartir lo que para ello ha sido concebido, y obligados a las consecuencias que ello comporta. ... ...la intuición nos ensoñaba caminos, vericuetos, remansos y torbellinos que, ya sabidos, ya queridos, no podremos compartir sus momentos pues ya fueron, pero sí podremos, lo que se nos dió, dar los instrumentos que abren los caminos,sus vericuetos, los remansos y sus torbellinos."

  • The Spirit of China

    Arts & Culture, Audio/Visual Design

    Hi all,

    I was thinking about a little design project to get going. Something that has always intrigued me about Chinese culture is its focus on the essence of a matter. Their painting often have simple lines with a tremendous amount of space. These works of art lead you to feel the art rather than see it alone.

    What I'd like to achieve is to use graphic design to bring out some of that mystical feeling of old China. It doesn't necessarily need to be like traditional Chinese painting, but maybe that style of "leaving it up to the imagination" could produce some interesting results.

    What do you think?

    Hola a todos nuevamente.

    En la actualidad me encuentro realizando una pequeña investigación acerca de la influencia del entorno (social, cultural, político y hasta paisajístico y urbano) en el diseño gráfico en general.

    Por tal motivo, me gustaría conocer sus puntos de vista al respecto, invitándolos a dejar sus comentarios en este espacio o por correo a octubredigital@hotmail.com o en los formularios de contacto presentes en www.octubre.com.uy.

    Muchas gracias desde ya! Atte. Plácido Luna.

  • Winning_50x70_177_

    Creative Director of renowned East London based design agency Ochee, Jason Kelly has won one of only 30 places out of almost 3000 entrants in the Human Rights Violation category of the esteemed social communication project organised by 50 x 70 – one of only 2 UK based design agencies. The competition was endorsed by Amnesty International, Greenpeace, UNICEF and The WWF. The core brief of the competition was whether the declaration itself is actually “worth the paper” that it is written on. 60 years after the UN unveiled the Universal declaration of Human Rights almost half of the world’s population experiences severe violations of this declaration on a daily basis. A concept reflected effectively in “The Shredder” – Ochee’s winning entry - http://good50x70.org/2008/gallery/gallery03/ – a powerful image resonating the virtual destruction of the declaration’s socially responsive sentiment.

    Founded in 2001 by Jason Kelly, Ochee has become of one East London’s leading design companies. Its philosophy is based around the concept of being socially creative – a concept often overlooked in a fiercely competitive industry. Coming from a commercially driven background; Jason Kelly has worked for some of the most prominent media powerhouses such as GQ, The Saturday Telegraph and Condé Nast Traveller. With this experience under his belt Jason has built up one of London’s most exciting young design agencies. Offering a range of services including branding, adve...

    Dreamshake_logo_177_

    If you are looking for people to share your dreams with and possibly achieve them, then Dreamshake could be the place you ever dreamed of.

    This online French community allows you to share, look for and sponsor peoples' dreams. Dreamshake is focused on social and humanitarian initiatives, featured in the following categories : Discovery and Trips, Innovation, Solidarity, Career and Reconversion, Entrepreneur, Culture and Arts, Adventure, Sports and Feat, Ecology, NGO.

    Behind this social initiative are two French fellows, François-Xavier Tanguy (alias Fix) and Arnaud Dubois who achieved a very ambitious dream, "Des Rêves Plein le Monde", a 7 month dream collecting trip from Phnom Penh, via Kaboul to Paris on 125 cc motorbikes. Back home, François-Xavier and Arnaud published the book Des Rêves Plein le Monde. A year later in February 2008, they launched the Dreamshake website.

    Being a true dream believer and practitioner myself I am very enthusiastic about Dreamshake, which makes John Lennon words a bit more real : "You might say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one..."
