Attended the Design Exchange Panel Lecture last night at the United Nations, organized by the Cooper Hewitt’s ongoing showcase, DESIGN WITH THE OTHER 90%. The show is up right now at the UN and shows how design and design ingenuity can partner with global initiatives to improve the way we live. Check out the site and see how you can get involved, especially if you are a designer! You can even join their network, and promote your own projects that are using design to improve the ways we live. Anna Rubbo, a professor at the University of Sydney, spoke on the panel, and will be one of the hosts of the Global Studio 2012 in Bhopal (which Megan will be attending – more on that soon!!) Design is changing the face of development and communication – start looking into how you can join this movement too!

What have we been up to? So glad you asked. 😎 Liz here to tell ya last year we opened up our studio to the community for MAKESHOP and had some incredibly good times. This year MAKESHOP is taking a new shape- we’re collaborating with the the kids at Boys & Girls Club for a summer of design + coding workshops in our studio, and though we miss our empty storefront full of possibility, we have some sweet new neighbors, @vandaliadonutco moving in next door AND that’s not all! 👀 We’re officially opening our MESH space for COWORKING! So come join us — Drop in for the day, the month, or go big with a dedicated desk! Drop-ins are $20 daily with bottomless coffee and v good WiFi! Monthly floating starts around $50 and comes with a side of camaraderie 😉, and your very own dedicated desk and 24/7 access starts at $200. We’re trying to craft some creative community in a new way and we’re trying to keep it accessible! ➡️ Interested? Drop us a line firstname.lastname@example.org or DM us. Spread the word. Talk soon! 💙
