Collective Intelligence. Collaborative Design.

In the Spring of 2008, I was selected to curate, edit and design the College of Design’s student publication. This student publication serves as a venue for graduate students, faculty, alumni and professionals to express their ideas surrounding a selected topic. The publication, Collective Intelligence. Collaborative Design, focused on exploring collaboration and co-creation in design. Working collaboratively with two other designers(Rebecca and Alberto), I led the team to create a publication that explored the ways in which participatory culture is changing the design field. The book is comprised of three smaller books that are bound together by rubber bands. This flexible binding allows the audience to take apart and reorder the books if so desired, but more importantly it hints at the audience’s role with the artifact. The publication recently won an award from the AIGA Raleigh/Charlotte Boom! Design competition.
