Design it: a series of competitions focusing designers on social issues;
- Tell Us: information exchange on where good design can be found;
- Find It: a marketplace where goods can be offered from which some of the proceeds support charities, (typical of the modus operandi of Felissimo Design House), and
- The Plaza: an area hosting portfolios and profiles of designers and NGOs as well as a networking site.
Each of eight themes: architecture, culture, children, communication, environment, peace, world aid, and self-sufficiency will be represented by an "honorable emissary"--a famous face or well-known name to give the effort credibility.
If you are interested, the invitation to the competition is here and more information can be found at DESIGN21sdn:
Create the official logo of the DESIGN 21: Social Design Network - the winner will receive $5,000. DESIGN 21: Social Design Network is a new online community that will bring designers and non-profits together to create, share and discuss socially responsible design. Kicking off the launch of this exciting new venture, designers from around the world - students and professionals - are invited to enter. The contest ends September 4. Go to www.design21sdn.com for information on the competition and the Social Design Network and enter your design!
