We the People:
Social Concious Design & The art of giving back

, Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

Freedom. Truth. Design.

Creating social change through design has been at the core of our society since before the first quill dared to put the notion of freedom on paper. Designers have always been a little ahead of the curve in leaving the world a better place then when we found it. We have conceived of entire cities from dust, made history from a single perfect image, changed the face & fabric of society through our work, and brought people together in one voice – all though the power of the visual.

So, in honor of our nation’s birthday, I pose this question: In a world where there is no shortage of social challenges to tackle, how can designers continue to use our power for good in order to form a more perfect union?

Here’s a few to get you started — can you add to the list?
