Design Road Show

Designer Emily Pilloton (who recently appeared on the Colbert Report) will set off in a vintage Airstream trailer next week to bring the world of product design (that solves problems) to high schools and universities across America. There’s a kickoff party in San Francisco next Thursday, Feb. 4.

The Design Revolution Road Show is a traveling exhibition and
lecture series bringing “product design that empowers” to 25 high
schools and university design programs across the nation in the Spring
of 2010. A Project H Design initiative, the road show will feature an Airstream trailer exhibition of 40 humanitarian design solutions that have been showcased in the book Design Revolution: 100 Products that Empower People.

The programming will bring the evidence of and tools for design for
social impact to the doorsteps of students, with the ultimate goal of
enabling and empowering the next generation of creative problem-solvers
to apply their skills to the world’s most pressing problems and improve
life on a global scale.
