dDIY #9: Take a Photo of a Design Dilemma In Your 'Hood
Your Mission: Take a photo of a design dilemma in your 'hood.
Specs: Take a hi-res pic (up to 2 MB) of this design issue and upload it here. There are a lot of neighborhood design dilemmas out there. You know the ones, your neighbor's leaky garden hose, a lonely and uncomfortable bus stop, pot holes in the street or neglected bike lane paint. Once you get looking you're sure to see these cropping up everywhere. Lucky for you; there are a ton of creative people in Denver who are looking to solve these dilemmas NOW by participating in Open For Design: A DAM Community Challenge, the DAM's first visitor-sourced exhibition! So send in your dilemmas, we'll display them online and in the exhibition where a local designer may just solve your neighborhood problem.
So easy: You can do that. Go to the Collective's webpage for further instructions.
