Los Angeles Police Department Memorial to Fallen Officers

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:

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