After a busy month of work placements, design contests, etc, I am ready to continue tackling my dissertation which focuses on design and social responsibiliy, namely looking at the 'First Things First Manifesto'.
So far, I have been fortunate enough to have had interviews with Marian Bantjes, and Adbusters founder, Kalle Lasn, but I have a tremendous amount of work to do still!!
Today, I have spent a couple of hours getting my organised, and have started a bit of research, which has led me to a few interesting things: (not necessarily related to my dissertation, but interesting nevertheless!!)
