Design Competition Recognizes “Do-Gooders”

We received an amazing mass of inspiring work for cause/affect 09! Judging took place June 27th and now it's time to recognize the truly worthy.

We’ve all toiled into the night on projects for good causes with scant hope of any recognition (we’re do-gooders after all!). But we believe one good deed deserves another, so we’re giving out a stack of awards to those whose creative work stacks up.

And just as importantly, we want to get a bunch of good people in a room to see if we can stimulate a few world-changing ideas of our own. We’re hopeless dreamers like that.

When Thursday, July 09, 2009 from 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM (PT)

Where AIGA San Francisco Gallery 130 Sutter Street, #600 San Francisco, CA 94104

Join us!

Winning work will be showcased at the cause/affect awards ceremony July 9, 2009 and displayed at the AIGA SF gallery through August 7, 2009. Winning entrants will also be featured on the cause/affect site and a portion of any proceeds from the competition will be donated to a local non-profit organization.

cause/affect is a biennial graphic design competition which celebrates the work of designers and organizations who set out to positively impact our society. Produced by AIGA San Francisco, this is a competition for do-gooders who do good work. Send in your entries before June 19, 2009.

The details of the competition are simple: all work entered must promote or support social good. All we ask is that it doesn’t contribute directly to the profit of a commercial organization. And to qualify, work must have been produced between November 1, 2007 and June 19, 2009.

The competition generated a tremendous amount of interest during its inaugural year in 2007, and this time out the organizers expect to receive a similarly enthusiastic response. “We were staggered by the global interest the competition stimulated” said Brian Singer, AIGA SF President, ”...we received entries from as far afield as Norway, the Netherlands and Singapore. And this year, with excitement about the competition mounting, and the blogosphere clicking into high gear, we’re expecting to see do-gooders flooding our offices with another batch of awe-inspiring work.”
