One Day for Design
One Day For Design aims to 'bring together a global community of designers and design enthusiasts to exchange ideas, challenge viewpoints and push boundaries' in a real-time, online global debate. That day is April 13, 2011
One Day For Design is an initiative hosted by the AIGA. Described as an "online conversation among a global community of designers and design enthusiasts" it aims to stimulate debate about the future of design. Guest moderators throughout the day include Alex Bogusky, Liz Danzico, Debbie Millman, Erik Spiekermann, Armin Vit and Alissa Walker.
You can also follow (and contribute to) the conversation here on Twitter.
It starts at 00:00 GMT on April 13.
For an event of this nature, it has been VERY under promoted. Maybe this posting will raise the profile and stimulate the debate... As so far not living up to expectation.
I love the idea.. Can't wait to come home today to all sorts of wisdom I can learn from as a first year (with prior 4-year technical training in highschool!) design student.
So it's basically a whole load of tweeting into an empty vacuum? Or am I missing the point?
signed up to twitter months ago. literally Never use it (no blackberry or iphone) till today, this is great- cheers for the reminder.
What a great conversation on Twitter.
So many good opinions. We even sledged Papyrus ;-)
It was really hard to keep up with the feed! I think it also became a trending topic at one stage. I think @stop the Creative Director of Twitter created an account to record the best comments of the day.
Maybe this is something Creative Review could look at? I think it would become a great book! Even various partners from Pentagram chimed in.
Think it was a great idea. I looked at the conversation in Twitter and what a great ideas people have. It is nice to see that people do not look at boundaries and think outside the box.
