The Masters of Design Futures program offered by Queensland College of Art Griffith University , is a major innovation in postgraduate design education. This is so in terms of content, presentation and availability. It has been created because "design, in all its forms, has never confronted challenges of the scale of those now emerging" and "the stakes have never been higher, but neither have the opportunities"... by Dr Tony Fry (Adjunct Prof) Program begins : July 2008 :: www.griffith.edu.au/designfutures/preview QLD, AU

Stirring Appetites pic Stirring Appetites : New Design Responses in Indigenous Communities :: 25th Sept-17 Oct Through photographs and data, German designer Christian Tietz highlights how Australian designers, can respond to reducing the 17-year gap between the average Australian and Indigenous Australian's life expectancy by producing products that fulfil the needs of specific cultural groups. "To improve a person's nutrition and health, strategies for healthy eating are not only required, but also the 'hardware' to cook and prepare food," says Tietz.

High-end fashion as one-off pieces with around 90% recycled materials and the results are quite stunning.
In 2006 Rachael Cassar graduated University of Technology Sydney (UTS) B.Des Fashion & Textiles. In launching her career, Rachael's winning collection was first selected by Society for Responsible Design ChangeX07 exhibition in June at Australian Technology Park, Sydney. Her designs display a fusion of style and greener ideas has now been confirmed as a new fashion direction all created around the concept of sustainability.

We're glad we were able to assist promotion of her ideas in this way and delighted that she has received this much deserved acknowledgment of her talent in Italy.

design philosophy graphic Design Philosophy Politics - Launched
Design Philosophy Politics seeks to expose the enormous power of design: how it shapes what we desire and how we live; how it drives demands for resources and energy and with what consequences. The articles published show that design is deeply implicated in the unsustainability of contemporary life. Yet it is only by design that things can become otherwise ... See http://designphilosophypolitics.com
eNews v2n12 Editorial brief
Architecture, Industrial, Graphic and indeed ALL streams of design create major components in our existence and built environment. However bold and beautiful, new and functional, their existence has found even greater purpose: to illustrate best practice. That of course is best current environmental practice as, increasingly, other forms or inconsiderate practice will become and be seen to become more than irrelevant but actually downright dangerous.
A DIA talk this November in Sydney will highlight these issues and more, focusing on materials but also looking at the bigger picture. We need to make significant changes in our total existence as a society to ensure we experience a longer term future that we can be proud of. No matter how much image, glitz and glamour may be strewn about, it's now quite clear that you are either creating more problems by inaction or inappropriate action or you're becoming a part of the solution. Welcome to all those in the latter group and encourage all those not yet really participating to come aboard. .ReThink Materials ... detail below

Education is also integral to enabling change as is your support. To enable promotion of the creative product and design thinking process from the peak of our education system ...
SRD ChangeX 08 sponsorships open. Looking toward our fifth successful year featuring graduate projects from across Sydney's Universities that feature Responsible Design and ideas to inspire and challenge inappropriate convention. Just like our environment, we need your financial support more than ever for 2008! Your input level is fully negotiable. As starting guide, see benefits on page 2 of our 2007 Sponsor packs in pdf available online at : Changex 07 Sponsor_packs_18mar7.pdf

design philosophy graphic Design Philosophy Papers Collection Three released. Explore design philosophically with discussion on the importance of design in everyday life, exploring its relation to ethics, disability, homelessness, sustainability, social & historical change. The authors range across design research, design theory, urban & architectural design, engineering design, development studies & continental philosophy. www.desphilosophy.com/dpp/home.html complemented by design philosophy politics : designphilosophypolitics.informatics.indiana.edu
Design Philosophy Papers : Current. Always substantive reading. (Two papers, relate to a SRD ChangeX theme), One paper discusses ethics & design education, asking how designers, when knowing the right thing to do for the good of all, might productively intervene to turn design opportunities into change. Another reviews the role of education in the ethical engagement of practitioners. The third asks the question "How may Interaction Design contribute to sustainment noting many points including that 'software and hardware are presently intimately connected to a cycle of mutual obsolescence'", completing with five principles of sustainability.
Design Philosophy Papers propose to metamorphose. see : www.desphilosophy.com/dpp/dpp_journal/journal.html
