Power Me – Call for Work!
Grouphug is back for its 4th annual show & ready to shake things up during NYC Design Week!
This year I am excited to announce the theme – “Power Me”. Sustainability is a subject close to my own heart. Since 2009, I’ve pursued many personal projects like the Closed Loop, CEOs for Change, and Wildgrid to try and make a small positive impact.
Now, more than ever, we need designers & creative problem solvers to come together and focus their talents on the issues that really matter. As I wrote in a previous post, the world doesn’t need more high end chairs, it needs real solutions to issues like our energy problems.
We chose to tackle energy this year, not only because of certain skeptics, but because it’s a somewhat invisible resource that people unconsciously consume. It feels like there is an unlimited supply of electricity, food, and materials available at our fingertips. Energy touches every aspect of our lives – from the meals we eat, the devices we love, and the clothes we wear. Our lives are comfortable and our habits are power hungry, but at what cost?
This is a call to action – submit your ideas about energy to Grouphug’s 4th annual show: Power Me. Submit an idea and it will get displayed during NYCx Design Week and get covered by the biggest design publications. Let thousands of people see your idea and get inspired by it. Let people and other designers give you feedback and join forces with you. Be part of a movement of designers who are proactively proposing solutions.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
We’re coming for you, 2017.
