  • Lightbox-display-big_177_

    Illustrator/designer Rod Hunt Rod Hunt was commissioned by Real Studios in February 2007 to illustrate a large scale permanent interactive display for the new Lightbox Museum & Gallery in Woking UK, designed by Marks Barfield, the creators of the London Eye.

    The project took over 3 months to complete, & was installed for the Lightbox building’s official opening on Friday 14th September 2007

    It’s a graphic lightbox covering a final area of 5m x 2m . The content is based on what Woking, already Britain’s greenest borough, is doing to support environmental issues within the town. The visitor is given a selection of push buttons with facts/questions that light-up specific activities within the illustration. The illustration needed to closely convey the identity & flavour of Woking, including many of its key features & landmarks. So Rod spent a day photographing the town, supported by a guide provided by the Lightbox museum & gallery. There were many design issues to resolve, including how to represent the carbon saving scale. The final illustration was drawn at actual size in Adobe Illustrator.

  • 60, Unite For Children

    Aid, Communication Design

    Malau_47132adeee172_177_

    Sixty Graphic Designers and Illustrators have teamed with UNICEF this week, to launch a new publication, website and forthcoming exhibition. This is by far the most exciting Social Design collaboration I have come across in a long time.

    The two years project was born last week, and all the money raised will go to UNICEF. The 60 Unite For Children website is just a sample of what I am sure will be an exciting project. There is also a blog, that hopefully will keep us up to date with the goings on.

    The book can be bought online from tomorrow, whilst the exhibition will start in November, for a year.

  • Cause / Affect : AIGA Design Competition

    Communication, Communication Design

    Post-1-1191875043_177_

    Cause/Affect is a biennial graphic design competition which celebrates the work of designers and organizations who set out to positively impact our society and communities.

    AIGA San Francisco, the professional association for design, has issued a call for entries for a new graphic design competition celebrating the work of designers who set out to positively impact our society and communities.

    "All design work entered in the competition must promote or support social good and actively engage in enriching our lives. "So often designers work on pro bono projects, or other projects for good causes, in isolation. In our professional lives we can get the feeling we are sneaking a non-profit client in through the back door, as we strive to meet our other professional obligations."

    The entry deadline for the competition - cause/affect - is November 9, 2007.

    The National Organization for Women Foundation is hosting a poster contest to celebrate the 11th anniversary of the Love Your Body Campaign.

    The grand prize winning poster will be used as part of a national campaign to challenge the violent, drug-addicted, starved, surgically-enhanced images of women and to fight against industries that profit from women’s dissatisfaction with their bodies.

  • 'Applied Green' conference review

    Environment, Communication Design

    I managed to attend the overpriced 'Applied Green' event Oct.3 (£650!!) at the British Library and feel duty bound to share my good fortune with everyone else who cannot pay this kind of money to Eurostar and Haymarket to discuss green communications.

    I arrived cynical of big brands and marketing agencies addressing an environmental agenda but interested in hearing the speakers address the subject. I was not disappointed. Jonathon Porritt (Forum for the Future) started things off with a sobering overview. Next, John Grant (of The Green Marketing Manifesto) set the tone for the day early in the morning with his memorable line about Green Consumer Research 'Brilliant at justifying. Useless at strategizing'. I took this as a good sign.

    John Gisby discussed the importance of acknowledging and working with difficult emotions. We have a tough brief with climate change – we are asking people to stop doing things they enjoy. Is it possible? Gisby looked at ways of reframing the debate by looking at the words we use, harnessing emotions to drive change, and making this change real and visible. Raising awareness is one thing, he claims, but behaviour change is another and we need to recognize that our emotions are greater motivators than scientific arguments.

    Ben Terrett of The Design Conspiracy gave a talk; 'Designers – Its our Fault' that implored industry to use designers better. Claiming that design is a way of thinking, he says to companies, 'Don't just use us (design...
