The world is a confusing place. Via Civic Discourse: Multiculturalism, Cultural Diversity, and Global Communiation
(Saving this here because I can never find it. The story of british girls, american men, and the surprises of dating across cultural borders.)
130,000 words or “only a 500 page book”. I was disappointed, frankly. But it is what it is.
This week, we helped our friends at Helsinki Design Lab launch an archive of the all of the materials they created during their five-year run. The archive includes some beautifully designed and extremely information dense books, a series of posters, videos and 130,000 words documenting the day to day operations of the lab.
HDL’s goal was to promote the idea of strategic design, or the application of design processes to big picture problems like health care, sustainable development, and climate change.
This archive represents a very valuable collection of material for designers and large organizations who want to work with designers to solve big problems.
