The 2008 London Design Festival will see the launch of greengaged at the Design Council – a hub of events, debates, workshops, exhibitions, seminars and masterclasses which will bring together all sectors of the design industry to focus on sustainability issues, exchange ideas and carve out new roles for design.

Hosted by the Design Council in Covent Garden greengaged is set to be one of the highlights of this year’s festival, examining ecological imperatives, political and social drivers, and sustainable design strategies across disciplines from product design to graphics, service design to fashion.

greengaged aims to galvanise designers to take up the sustainable challenge and will feature some of the most forward-thinking designers and innovators in their fields to engage the wider design industry in getting involved, becoming informed and sharing expertise and opinions.

Un-Design….

Found this work of Anneke Jakobs very interesting where she talks about ‘undesigning’. The concept of working backwards from a finished product to trace ‘what it all began with’ is an exercise worth takin once in a while….it would make one appreciate the ideating process of the designer and what he/she has in hand to start off with.
