  • Get your ethical/social project up and running

    Community, Communication Design

    Do you have a project that aims to create public or social benefit, rather than money? Perhaps you are planning a green exhibition or art workshops in your local community? London's ECCA are hosting an event on November 15th, entitled "How to get your ethical/social project up and running".

    From 2pm at Chelsea College of Art & Design, the event will teach you what you need to get going and give you some key tips for survival. You'll learn from a range of people that have been there and done it very successfully.

    Speakers include:

  • Traditional versus Modern knowledge

    Well-being, Environmental Design

    The more I visit and meet rural people, the higher my respect for their knowledge rises. It amazes me that we from the cities and academies regard them as uneducated, illiterate and "subjects" for our "expert" inputs. Much of their knowledge and expertise is not in the form that we would recognize (as in "notice") or recognize (as in "award"), because it is embodied. However, they are masters at being resourceful, innovative, living light and being content—what else could one ask for? And isn't it ironic that despite our high knowledge and technical expertise, we are struggling to achieve precisely the same ends?

    Sorry to go on about it, but until you use a DinkyCard I will keep bugging you all. www.DinkyCard.org

  • DinkyCard. Your little contrinution to the planet.

    The idea is to make a tiny change and see what it leads to.

    As a designer a powerful piece of paper that's used to make a statement for business owners is still the business card. So let's change that statement a little and make it an eco one as well as a corporate one.

    The DinkyCard has one goal to get designers using the new DinkyCard format, which is 2x1.75, half the current U.S standard size. All I ask is to tell me how many you produced at the new size so I can calculate the eco impact, and be really nice and put on a DinkyCard.org credit on your design to help spread the word.

    It's a campaign, not a business - so join in please, I can't do it alone. Cheers Jim

  • REESTORE Eco Products by Max McMurdo

    Environment, Industrial Design

    Maxchaise2_177_

    Founded by UK Product Designer Max McMurdo, Reestore is a new line of green products to keep your eyes on!

    Taking everyday waste objects and cheekily turn them into charming yet functional pieces of furniture and accessories, Reestore explain how they attempt to avoid traditional eco materials in favour of contemporary finishes, fabrics and above all style.

    McMurdo recently featured on UK series of Dragon's Den, a television programme that consists of entrepreneurs pitching their ideas to secure investment finance from business experts — the "Dragons". Max proposed his bid on the show; asking for £50,000 for 10% of his Reestore eco design business.

    Max made a confident pitch, highlighting "Ben the Bin", a portable, recyclable bin, as well as a range of other products already on the market. Dragon's Theo Paphitis and Deborah Meaden were enthusiastic about the business and the potential of McMurdo, and offered him an investment of £25,000 each in Reestore, between them taking a 30% stake. The Dragons stressed that they were investing in Max and in his future as a designer, and in doing so saved Ben the Bin from the scrapheap of history.

    With the dragons behind Max and the Reestore project, this is definately one to keep our eyes on! I am currently in contact with Reestore in preperation of a forthcoming article on Inhabitat.com, which I will post to Design21 in due course.
