  • TITO - mascot for a recycling oil food company - 2007

    Communication, Environmental Design

    Tito_177_

    TITO, is the mascot for a recycling oil food company. Created in 2007, this character body shape is based in the representation of an oil drop . His eyes format, proportion, and his texture were developed based in the knowledge in the oral stage, of the developing stages described by freud.

    The comercial target for this mascot, is in the 0-18 months, and also throught to the next stage, until the 3 years old.

    The idea is creating a connection between the child and this toy. Not because of the conscience of the children, but essentially because of their unconscious, linked to this object.

    However, their parents will project their babies image into the TITO´s friendly,and fragil shape. And will be greatful for all the things that make their children happy, healthy, and mostly: silent, like when they play with a toy for their ages.

    With this emotional linking, TITO has an operating role in their changing, or at least becoming conscience about their ecologic behavior - specially in the recycling oil food matters.

    Look us in the future and learn more about these kind of mascots, and their campaigns.

  • DATA (Designers Against Tibetan Abuse)

    Peace, Communication Design

    Designersagainsttibetanabuse_177_

    "As designers we have a social obligation to raise awareness of the horrors that less fortunate people face. Tibet has been illegally occupied by China since 1950 and yet only recently with the Olympic Torch fiasco have these attrocities been recognised by the popular radar..."

    "...Please note that this society does not condolne the discrimination or slander of any race, especially the Chinese, as many people of the Chinese race themselves have no idea what has been going on. Thus the sole purpose of this society is to raise awareness of the facts and not to make judgement upon anyone, let alone discriminate against them..."

    DATA is currently working on its first project, collaborating with some of the most renowned designers, illustrators, digital artists, photographers and motion designers to create a book.

    Some confirmed participants are:

    Adhemas Batista, Alex Trochut, Bram Timmer, David Carvalho (Karpa) Greig Anderson, Pawel Nolbert (hellocolor), Pete Harrison (Aeiko), Mike Harrison (Destill), Si Scott, Justin Maller (superlover and depthcore), Diogo Potes (six letter word) etc.

    Although at this moment in time, participants for the book in project 1 are by invite only.

    DATA is also currently looking for designers to volunteer to make a functioning website. If you are interested please contact: info@designersagainsttibetanabuse.com

    DATA IS COMPLETELY NON PROFIT, 100% OF THE PROFIT DONE WITH THE BOOK SELLING WILL GO TO THE TIBET FOUNDATION

  • VILLAGE ECOTOURISM NETWORK

    Jed-tenganan1_177_

    Journey for a powerful impact on people, culture & the environment

    Welcome to JED Bali’s only ecotourism network

    Jaringan Ekowisata Desa – or ‘Village Ecotourism Network’– was grown from seeds planted by hands from four villages scattered across Bali. JED is an invitation to the world to meet Bali as the Balinese know and love it.

    Take a break from the tourist routines, expand your travel horizons and give something back to Bali. From the lush, earthy aromas of the forest to the rush of garlic and chili in the kitchen… from floating silently above a seaweed farm to stepping through the gates of an ancient fortress… come and see what happens when tourism really is ‘by and for’ the people

    JED Background

    JED was launched in 2002 in response to the problematic mass tourism trends in Bali. It was designed and is owned by the communities of four Balinese villages. They are: Kiadan Pelaga, Dukuh Sibetan, Tenganan Pegeringsingan and Ceningan Island – with the administrative help of the Wisnu Foundation, one of Bali’s oldest environmental NGOs.

    Principles of JED

    • JED is planned and managed by the community in each village. • Local of each village are employed for all guiding, cooking and accommodation provision in the villages. • The funds generated through JED tourism activities support community development and environmental conservation activities. • JED trips are designed to have minimal impact on the local environment. • JED aims to strengthen t...

    Leaders of the world's eight richest countries (the G8) meet in July. They could have a huge impact on global poverty. Or they could do next to nothing. Help make sure they use this big opportunity to make a difference.

    The meetings coincide with the famous Japanese Tanabata festival, where people tie written wishes to bamboo trees. Tie your wish to our virtual tree, and we'll let world leaders know you want to see action, now.

    another question...

    why so few enteries for the Millenium Promise Competition?!

    Hope you've used your vote!

  • 250px-newsnight_scotland_3_177_

    Ears pricked when i heard the mention of - wait for it - the UN Millenium Summit and the 8 UN Millenium Development Goals, being introduced on Newsnight about half an hour ago.

    Having spent many hours stewing over the brief for the Millenium Promise Competition on this here site and researching into the cause I couldn't help but listen intently to the piece.

    For those of you unacquainted with Scottish media, Newsnight Scotland, that replaces the final 20 minutes of the london-centric Newsnight for Scottish viewers, is a BBC news analysis prgoramme in which, through ruthless interviewing styles, viewers can learn more about current issues within the country as well as international affairs relating to devolved Scotland.

    Don't let the diminutive size of this land fool you. These people love their politics - well, not so much the voting part. Small it might be but, as with countless other small nations, patriotism runs high and with nationalists now in power some consider we have triggered a chain of events that will lead to independance from the UK.

    Small nations love to feel important. Its understandable. The G8 Summit in Gleneagles has affirmed this and rightfully so. The Scottish people cling to this as anything that panders to this need - kind of like England's determination that it has a world class football side becuase of its World Cup victory in 1966. Nine out of ten of the Scottish National Party's core support will, when debating the Union (with England that is) w...
