It's confirmed: the world is broken and it needs to be fixed. The economy is hurting, the world is warming, and people are in need abroad and at home. What can we as designers and as individuals do to help make the world a better place? How can businesses afford to be philanthropic when the focus has been on maximizing value for shareholders? How can design be part of the solution rather than part of the problem?

Based on her work with Architecture for Humanity and the Open Architecture Network [OAN], the California Academy of Sciences, Once Upon a School, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art — and collaborations with partners such as Sun Microsystems, the TED Prize and author Dave Eggers — Maria will present tools and techniques for building online communities, strategies for extending your reach with existing social media platforms, and how design can be the great differentiator for non-profits and cause marketing.

  • 14. 2007 Accenture study on product returns “A recent study by Accenture estimates the costs of consumer electronics returns in 2007 at $13.8 billion in the United States alone, with return rates ranging from 11 percent to 20 percent, depending on the type of product. The distribution of reasons to return the product: - 68%: does not meet customer expectations - 27%: buyer’s remorse - 5%: defects or malfunctions Accenture believes that the return rates for functional products would decline significantly if vendors and retailers invested more in making them easier to set up and use, and in educating buyers.” http://www.uselog.com/2008/06/recent-study-by-accenture-estimates.html
  • 15. Blink of an eye Internet users judge Web sites in less than a blink Internet users can give Web sites a thumbs up or thumbs down in less than the blink of an eye, according to a study by Canadian researchers. In just a brief one-twentieth of a second — less than half the time it takes to blink — people make aesthetic judgments that influence the rest of their experience with an Internet site. “If the first impression is negative, you’ll probably drive people off.“ — Gitte Lindgaard Behavior and Information Technology Journal, 2003

  • 22. Annual Report redesign “I just read through the Women’s Foundation Annual Report and I had to write you to say that I really like the way you’ve presented the stories of your grantees. “It’s an annual report that’s hard to put down; I finished it in one sitting and found inspiration on every page. The graphics, layout and approach are so engaging and accessible. “Keep up the amazing work!” Candice Sung Kim candice@coalitionforcleanair.org
