Rule29 Creates One of Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas
World Changing Ideas is one of Fast Company’s major annual awards programs and is focused on social good, seeking to elevate finished products and brave concepts that make the world better. A panel of judges from across sectors choose winners and finalists based on feasibility and the potential for impact. With a goal of awarding ingenuity and fostering innovation, Fast Company draws attention to ideas with great potential and helps them expand their reach to inspire more people to start work on solving the problems that affect us all.
Rule29’s design for good event Wheels4Water is one of the projects that was picked from over 1,200 entries. “Fast Company has always insisted that being a force for good has to be a key element for any business,” says Fast Company editor and managing director Robert Safian. “These World Changing Idea award winners show how organizations around the world are embracing the ideals of creativity and innovation to create enormous impact.” Rule29 is thankful to be one of the inaugural world changing idea finalists! #WCIAwards
Season 3 of #DesignOfPodcast kicks off with a Ninja
The next season of the Rule29 podcast, DesignOf, kicks off in style with some serious #GirlPower! Justin and Wills hang out with Karen Sabo – a humble midwesterner with a unique hobby: she’s an American Ninja Warrior. We learn about how an ASU soccer star went from the field to the Ninja pit, and how she’s using her passion to inspire the next generation of Ninjas. Check out DesignOf on iTunes, SoundCloud, Sticher and GooglePlay.
Wheels4Water: A Gallery Story About the Power of Design
The Wheels4Water Gallery opening was a hit! If any of you find yourself out in Anderson, Indiana we highly recommend stopping by the campus at AU and checking out the Wheels4Water gallery show. It features a sampling of the work and messaging we have created to help raise awareness and combat the world water crisis. Additionally, the show highlights the thinking, design and impact we have been able to have in partnership with Lifewater and the amazing companies and individuals who have supported the efforts. Please check out the show and the Wheels4Water website to find out more, to spread the word, or to donate!
