During 2011-12, we visited some of the world’s richest design capitals, holding live tournaments with over 150 talented creative pros. On Friday, November 16th, 35 of them converged on the Lower Eastside to compete in our Global Championship 2012. This playful new experiment featured live creativity fueled by audience-generated ideas.
The Jury determined the champions based on the competitors' adherence to the brief, strength of concept, originality, aesthetic, and technique.
Right now, one billion people don’t have access to clean drinking water. On mycharity: water, you can run, bike, or give up birthday presents to raise money to fund water projects for communities in need, and 100% of all donations directly funds water projects. Every dollar donation is linked to a water project and proved with photos and GPS. Now, charity: water seeks the help of the Cut&Paste design community for fresh ideas.
The Challenge: In a 15-minute offstage round, sketch a graphic that represents an activity you would do to raise money for clean water using the iPad and Adobe Ideas app, provided at Cut&Paste. The winner from all global entries receives the opportunity to work on a charity: water campaign. Click for more details and take a look at some designs from Global Champs 2012:
