  • The Greener Electronics Guide

    Environment, Audio/Visual Design


    Guardian blogger Kevin Anderson's article How green are your gadgets? took me over to the latest Greenpeace report Nintendo, Microsoft and Philips flunk toxic test, based on their Greener Electronics Guide (pictured).

    "The Greener Electronics Guide is our way of getting the electronics industry to face up to the problem of e-waste. We want manufacturers to get rid of harmful chemicals in their products. We want to see an end to the stories of unprotected child labourers scavenging mountains of cast-off gadgets created by society's gizmo-loving ways. The Guide ranks companies according to their policies and practices on toxic chemicals and takeback. Along with mobile phone and personal computer companies, we've now added the biggest makers of TVs and games consoles. Old TVs are a large part of e-waste and the games console market is one of the fastest growing in consumer electronics." - Greenpeace.

  • Noelle_art9r10_8

    An inspiring film made by writer/director David Wall, the story centers around Catholic priests Father Jonathan Keene and Father Simeon Joyce in a small Cape Cod town. It's been described a mix of "Waking Ned Devine" meets "Amelie".

    There is a subtle pro-life message in the film.

  • The Myth of the Mousetrap

    Communication, Communication Design


    Written by leading UK Inventor Anne Miller comes a great new book about creativity and innovation; The Myth of the Mousetrap.

    This book is for anyone who ever had an idea for making the world a slightly better place - but no one would listen. Or if they did listen, they said it wouldn't work. Or it was too risky, or not their area - or they just made so many objections that you got fed up and dropped the whole thing. The Myth of the Mousetrap will change all that. This important, enjoyable and stimulating book explains why it's so difficult to get a new idea adopted, and how to get your ideas taken seriously and put into action.

    The environmental, social and economic changes facing us today mean that new ideas are more urgently required than ever - and yet they are too often met with total resistance. The Myth of the Mousetrap explains why - and, more importantly, what you can do about it. Carrying on from where Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point left off, it also explains how to prepare your ideas and your outlook to give you the best chance of success, and then reveals the secrets of overcoming the four critical stages of resistance from others.

  • Orphans, oil, Darfur

    Poverty, Communication Design


    Darfur is in conflict. The only morsel of hard to find World news. The developement of the oil pipe line will bring more Military intervention into Darfur. Darfur is larger than Iraq. YouTube has some documentaries and videos available for viewing.

    This will divide the nation and as a result of this poverty and starvation will occur. We know this has begun with mass genocides. HBO will be airing a documentary next week on Darfur. Gearge Clooney is responsible for bringing this to our attention.

  • Design-a-thon

    Communication, Communication Design

    Hello. I have been trying to organize a Design-a-thon in my town (Milan, Italy). For who is not familiar with this kind of event, it's just a 2-3-days non stop event where local designers (web and graphic) put together their skills and knowledge to create print work and websites for no profit local organisations. It is a way to give back to our community and in the same time to showcase new talents. I was wondering if there is anyone that can help any kind of advice, direction to follow or even better, if there is anyone who has done before. Many thanks angie

  • This world is so little, we are so few, this pale blue dot is so small and fragile, that it's precious.

    I'm not sure anout how legal or righteous posting this is, but this is about sharing. I feel I couldn't say it better, so instead of quoting I just share the very same thing that moved me, not filtering or bastardising it it throug my own interpretations. Carl Sagan may be a little "passé" in some circles, and a little outdated in terms of technology or current knowledge, but he made me discover the magic of the universe when I was a little kid, growing in the eighties: he made me discover the universe, this world we take for granted just as the air or the water, wich now we know are so rare. After "Cosmos" I felt part of a bigger scheme, unique but insignificant, like a jewel or a sculpture by Michelangelo. Beautiful, indeed, but barely capable of changing only that a few meters and a few moments around us, while the sun continues rising wether we are here or not. In the end a just a beautiful waste of time and energy. A luxury. Precious.

    Esta es mi primer blog, y lamento mucho que el tópico sea este, pero no pude subir mi propuesta acerca del concurso del logotipo para el Festival de Documentales de la Naciones Unidas, estuve intentándolo todo el día, envié notas al contacto de Design 21, pero no hubo respuesta, esta es solo una manera de quejarme y ver si todavía se puede hacer algo, de cualquier forma, aquí les dejo mi propuesta, a ver que opinan.... This is my first blog, and i'm really sorry about the theme, but it's the only way to submit my complaint, because nobody answered me, besides i wrote to the team of Design 21. Well, i just want to write about my dissapoint about it, because i worked really hard to finish the logo ON time, and i was here, in front of the computer, almost the whole day, and i COULDN'T upload my proposal, I wrote to the Design 21 team ind i got no answer, I wish that there's something else to do about this. I leave here my proposal, tell me what you think about it...
