This book was created as the byproduct of a day-long workshop at Portland State University that Adam R. Garcia held in mid-March, 2012.
The book ended up becoming a playful collaborative project, based around the theme of “Design for the Future.” At the end of the workshop, we created a kind of manifesto, or values to share with the designers of tomorrow, and each of the students took a point and illustrated it as a spread. The spreads were built into an unbound book, along with writings, sketches and other thoughts around this idea. They were packaged in polybags in a limited edition run of 50, numbered and created as a kind of “artifact.” See below for a list of the fantastic student contributors.
Student contributors: Ryan Bush, Ethan Allen Smith, Jen Censky, Jeremy O’Connel, Silke Killian, Tina Le, Donny Stevens, Dawn Yanagihara, Brett Olivieri, Allison Berg, Randy Mulford, Chacellor Tagg and Brandon Roegner.
