    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.

    Dutch type designers produce many fonts, some of them are great others have less impact. But Dutch type designers have a well known status of creating one of the more readable fonts there are nowadays. To promote Dutch type even futher I´ve compiled a small type contest at my weblog.

    merancang sebuah desain, adalah merancang puisi. ia memerlukan sebuah kohesivitas, korelasi struktur, historisitas, dan kristalisasi. sebuah desain dikatakan demikian bila ia telah menemukan sebentuk musikalitas. nada-nada yang berdenting di antara detail-detail garis, warna, aksentuasi, etc. kedalaman merupakan salah satu kunci yang dapat kita pahamkan. tanpa kedalaman, desain hanya berhenti ditataran materi, ia banal. desain yang disertakan padanya kedalaman akan menggugah, ia bagai air yang menyejukan. banalitas sebuah desain hadir akibat sergapan modernitas dengan materialismenya yang pekat. sebuah desain yang berdiri di barisan ini, menandakan berakhirnya baris permenungan.

    maka sekali lagi desain adalah sebuah puisi. ia penuh kedalaman, darinya mengalir denting-denting lagu cinta.

  • Getting Sold

    Get-sold_copy_177_

    The Sold Project is "a grassroots movement dedicated to exposing the truth behind child prostitution through multi-media and the collaborative response of individuals striving to make a change." Multi-media guru Dan Portnoy has been working hard to get their <a href="http://thesoldproject.com/">web presence</a> up and running, and has created a hub of social justice action with the team including founder Rachel Sparks and fellow Fuller student Rachel Goble. These folks are all very encouraging and inspiring as the confront the issue that is much closer to home that we'd like to admit.

    Just recently, they've asked folks to put the sold logo on a picture of themselves in their facebook/myspace profiles until 4/22 to raise awareness. More info and the logo file are at http://thesoldproject.com/2008/04/14/get-sold if you want to "get sold" yourself. There is also a growing pool of these pictures here in a flickr group called "get-sold." It's a great way to get people involved and spread the word in your own little circles on the internet.

    Also, if you're in Pasadena or LA, there is a benefit concert featuring local bands including <a href="http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=11122978">Leap Year</a> as well as an art auction this Friday 6pm at Levitt Pavilion.

    Dear Communitiy Members!

    I would like to start a discussion on the latest David Report that is trying to find out a way to a better consumer behaviour for the future. You can find David Carlson's report here:.

    I already reacted on the report in my blog. We could go on discussing it here. I would like to know what others think about the future of consumerism.

    Thanks and all the best,

    Marco
