In light of this, 3things asked 4 students studying Visual Communications at The University of Technology, Sydney to design fun, engaging hand outs to help Oxfam generate interest around the GROW campaign. We love what they came up with.
Johanna, who was one of the designers, had this to say about her experience:
"It was such an amazing way to experience design thinking in a real situation. It has made me think more about how design influences people's thinking."
She also shared the 3things she can do to change the world using her proffesion:
1. Use design for GOOD, not evil
2. Practise sustainable design
3. Use my knowledge as a designer to practice a greener lifestyle
You don't have to be a hard core activist or a designer to change the world. Think about what your skills and interests are and then think of positive ways to use them. We would love to know what you come up with.
