We live with design on a daily basis. From the design of our toothbrush and coffee machine in the morning, to our cars and the design on the products in the supermarket. Design is the voice of the industry. The communication of the products and services. As a communications and packaging designer now working in environmental protection, it is possible for me to see both sides.
This group workshop deals with awareness. How much power does the industry have over my personal choices? And how do my choices then indirectly affect other people, animals and climate change. What is the designers role in depleting our resources and polluting our planet? How can we regain our control as a consumer?
