Call it projection mapping, pixel mapping, video mapping, or even architecturally registered mapping. It’s known by all those names and more.

Design for Good

Pro bono work not only helps worthy clients communicate their message through design, but provides unexpected benefits for the designers as well.

David Berman ends his manifesto Do Good Design: How Designers Can Change the World with the Do Good Pledge:

2.  I will be true to myself.
3.  I will spend at least 10% of my professional time helping repair the world.

MAD World

With a newly renovated building, dynamic wayfinding, and engaging interactives, the Museum of Arts and Design enters a new era.

A caterpillar requires 10 days to emerge from its chrysalis as a Monarch butterfly. It takes 10 weeks for a downy cygnet to transform into a Trumpeter swan. For the Museum of Arts and Design, metamorphosis has been a decades-long undertaking.
