as part of their visual advocacy course, the senior class has posted their "community advocacy" projects on the Design Ignites Change (DIC) website. DIC is a program that challenges students to use design thinking to explore and create solutions for pressing social problems. KCAI is a founding school in Design Ignites Change.
the project challenged students to find a social problem in the community and use graphic design to move toward a solution. projects ranged from HIV awareness and suicide prevention to creating hope for disadvantaged youth and early childhood education in the home. you can view the full range of kcai projects here on the DIC website.
these projects will be competing for an implementation grant totalling $15,000 that will help them to actually produce their project. wish them luck when you see them. we're excited about the possibilities for these projects and really hope to see some of them implemented.

So, Quirky has been catching my attention lately, but I haven't quite investigated its purpose until now. Basically, you can submit a design idea, and if accepted, it'll be added to the site as a concept! If enough people "pledge" or "commit" to the idea, they'll actually produce it! I just committed to this beautiful charger wrapper.

Gardi Amit writes an article for Fast Company that poses these questions:
1. Is there truly a “new design” phenomenon?
2. Is any idea, whether it’s an initiative for social progress or a clever way to market movies, enough to be declared a work of design?
3. Can a construct such as a “process,” “business plan” or a “system” be work of design?
4. Lastly, are these metaphysical constructs always design or is there a threshold of beauty, a rigorous process, or another quality standard that must be met for something to be considered a design? In other words, is a ‘business plan’ always a form of “new design” or does it have to involve some level of good, “old fashioned” design to be considered more than an ordinary business plan? And, if the latter, what are the requisite elements that would distinguish one from the other?
What do you think?

With flu symptoms, you should not be in studio or classes until you are fever free for 24 hours.
The Walgreens at 39th and Broadway has a walk-in clinic with a nurse practitioner. The nurse will give you a form that says you were seen and treated. You will bring that to Kathy Keller in the ARC. Kathy will notify the department that your absence is excused.
This Walgreen's takes our student insurance, which every KCAI student has. If you do not know this you can get your ID# from Nancy Noble in the student life office. Of course, you can also go to your own doctor too.

In 1926, the Dutch architect Mart Stam designed the first tubular cantilever chair. In the 1960s the chair was reproduced by several Italian furniture companies.
I have 4 knock-offs of the S 34 (they are black vinyl, rather than leather). The bodies are in decent enough shape but the seat backs need some love (one is ripped, but fixable).
They are priced online for hundreds a piece, but mine are yours for FREE. Just contact me to arrange a time to pick them up at my house.
