    The 'Re-drawing the Line' symposium will take place June 5 2008 at the London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle, 10:30 – 17:30.

    Re-drawing The Line is a one-day conference open to professional illustrators, designers, artists and creatives from related industries, as well as students, offering presentations, cross-disciplinary panel discussions and debate on contemporary topics and trends that are shaping the industry.

    Main themes of discussion:

    Applying labels: Categorising your professional practice With colleges increasingly taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the creative process, is the term ‘illustrator’ becoming a limiting description of your working practice? Are you proud to call yourself an ‘illustrator’? Is illustration enjoying the same status as say graphic design or fine art?

    Emerging Markets: With illustration enjoying a resurgence in popularity and the digital revolution being the most important development in illustration over the past decade. What are the current trends shaping our industry and the new opportunities open to illustrators? How long is the current renaissance in illustration set to last?

    Drawing the line: Addressing climate change & the ethical debate in illustration With sustainability and the eco-issue affecting all areas of our lives, what role are illustrators and graphic designers taking in addressing climate change?

The organization is currently seeking a short-term volunteer who could come to Bhutan and help upgrade their website. The volunteer would also be asked to conduct a very basic training in web design and website. Afterwards, the volunteer would have an opportunity to travel without having to pay Bhutan’s $240/day tourist tax if they wanted.

    POSITION REQUIREMENTS:

    -Demonstrated talent and experience in Web Design -Ability to spend roughly one week helping at the Bhutan Youth Development Fund (with website modification and basic web design trainings)

However, the web designer would receive a chance to visit Bhutan without paying the standard $240/day tourist tariff. They would also have free lodging, meals (breakfast and dinner) and transportation while working in Thimphu. If the web designer wished, s/he could spend one week working on the Bhutan YDF website and then take off to travel.

    Following the success of last month's initiative to fund 75 Hippo Rollers for South African community Kgautswane, Project H Design is at it again!

    Emily is currently in Uganda and informs me she has just launched the latest Project H initiative - Lifestraws for Mumbai! At only $25 each, Project H Design aims to donate 100 (or more!) Lifestraw Family systems to Mumbai, India.

    Lifestraw Family is an amazing point-of-use water filtration device designed and manufactured by Vestergaard Frandsen that eliminates 99.999% of waterborne disease bacteria, parasites, and viruses, bringing clean drinking water quickly and reliably, and preventing life-threatening disease from spreading through unclean water.

    Support is needed again, to help with the success of this project, so why not help this initiative and sponser a Lifestraw! $25 sponsors one Lifestraw family system.

    To find out everything about the Lifestraw project visit, Project H Design.

  • Ever since DisneyWorld and DisneyLand, people have realized that designers can create destinations where people will travel to see the work of innovative designers. Today cities as diverse as Dubai City and Cleveland, Ohio have decided to become destination cities based on design.

    K-12 Schools should follow their lead and become design destinations as well. Schools should look more like interactive children's museums rather than corporate office centers or prisons. Schools should mimic pull technologies rather than push technologies and create environments that attract students, educators, and community members. Schools should be places where people enjoy working and learning.
