  • RoofBloom builds a green roof in 7 minutes

    Environment, Environmental Design

    Chris Wegscheid & Corrie Zoll - RoofBloom

    Instead of waiting for green roofs to come to the Twin Cities as a product for mass consumption, RoofBloom was created to empower individuals with the knowledge and materials needed to install green roofs themselves. A collaboration between the Minnesota Green Roof Council and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, RoofBloom is taking action at a grass roots level, while focusing on improving the sustainability and effectiveness of green roof construction.

  • Dual Currency Systems designs money for new paradigm

    Joel Hodroff - Dual Currency Systems

    Joel has been on the leading edge of new money design and development for over a decade. His dual currency system, currently beta testing in Minneapolis, is one of the first of its kind and seeks to offer monetary rewards for volunteerism and healthy living in a similar way to how you can earn frequent flier miles or reward points on a credit card.

    Christian Trifilio & Jacqui Belleau - Worrell, Inc.

    Local industrial design firm Worrell, Inc. believes that at the heart of every problem lies an opportunity. A firm of creative problem solvers, they have recently collaborated with FilmAid International, an organization that brings entertainment and education to refugees in Africa, to develop a mobile movie theater. The Worrell/ FilmAid project was facilitated by NEED Magazine, after Worrell asked NEED if they knew of any humanitarian groups in need of design services. This 3 way collaboration is the perfect example of future positive creativity in action.
