Do good design

Do Good DesignDesign matters, like never before. Designers create so much of what we see, what we use, and what we experience. In this time of unprecedented environmental, social, and economic crises, designers will choose what their young profession will be about: inventing deceptions that encourage overconsumption — or helping repair the world. Today, everyone is a designer. And the future of civilization is our common design project.”

David Berman’s website has a brand new section where you can find out about his new book, “Do Good Design: How Designers Can Save the World”, take a professionals pledge, and read stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their professional lives to create good. You can also read the book online!

Take the do good pledge here! Kate just has… soon we should be able to see a list of everyone who has taken the pledge!

To share your Doing Good story, visit the  “Do Good Design: Tell Us Your Stories” group on Flickr, and post your story and the image that goes with it. All the images posted appear on David’s website.  I have just added mine!
