Design for Good

This semester I will be exploring some personal research in the area of Design for Good. It’s an exciting new area … well, not new exactly … designer’s have long been interested in using their talents to do work for social good. What’s new maybe is that many public policy thinkers are starting to think designers have something to offer in the way they approach problems.

As a part of my research, I will be doing many things. I will be reading—Just Design, by Christopher Simmons

I will be looking at many websites:

Project M

I will be visiting some people/places doing good things:

EPIC: Engaging Philanthropy / Inspiring Creatives

Moving Design

I will be working with the AIGA: Minnesota, hopefully, starting the Chapters Design for Good work
