Adelia Cook, one of three books of the Adelia Collection – Help little Adelia reach all the kids around the world!
I am launching a project in Catarse ( brazilian crowdfunding site) about an inclusive children’s book developed with an innovative Braille print created by author and graphic designer Wanda Gomes from Brazil. This Braille print developed by her is unique in the world and brings a whole new experience for children with visual impairment or not; it allows textures, reliefs and even scents to be printed!
The collection is called Adélia and is already in Portuguese with 9 thousand copies distributed.
The funding is to print 500 copies in Spanish for dissemination in Book Fairs in México, Argentina and Colombia with the Spanish publishers who have already requested the collection and also the american hispanic market.
A very important project for the education and inclusion of children with visual impairment.
The project also seeks investors to cover or exceed the total value for a larger print run and distribution.
Biodegradable plastic alone is not enough, due to scale of things, we need to stop using plastic wherever is possible and return to clay and glass. It´s a great movement, that is going global, fostering clay, potters and handcraft around the world.
This return to Nature must happen in Design with natural materials, industrial sustainable design is not enough, with the present consumption and manufacturing pace.
Consumption is the biggest issue of mankind, in the long term design and engineering might not be able to solve all the issues.
Designers, wake up and let´s support this great, amazing design film.
Hello, friends, Gary Hustwit here. I’m the director of the documentaries Helvetica,Objectified, and Urbanized. I’ve had the pleasure of having conversations with some of the most creative designers in the world for these films.
In 2008, I had the honor of interviewing Dieter Rams for my documentary Objectified, but I was only able to share a small piece of his story.
Dieter, who is now 84, is a very private person; however, I have been granted unprecedented and exclusive access to Dieter for the first feature-length documentary about his life and work.
