20x20 Design Democracy Project

The SABS Design Institute in partnership with Morning Star Design, Gamatong Design Enterprise and Bluprint Design extend a warm invitation to the launch of 20x20 Design Democracy Project which will take place during the annual SABS Convention on 10 October 2013 at the Sandton Convention Centre.

20x20 is an initiative that aims to bring together the design and related disciplines to activate against twenty design ideas that support nation building and social upliftment through design. 20x20 is a celebration of twenty years of democracy in South Africa, led by design for greater good.

The SABS Convention coincides with World Standards Day which is celebrated internationally on the 14th October every year. The theme for the 2013 World Standards Day as determined by ISO, IEC and ITU is “international standards ensure positive change”.  The SABS has translated the theme to “Our Economy – Our Jobs”, and the design breakaway session is structured around Good Design = Responsible Design = Good Business.

20x20 at the SABS Convention is one of many open fora that will allow designers to put forward ideas for debate and inclusion in 20x20.

So sharpen your pencils and bring your design ideas and sketchbooks for inspired debate and keen design insights.
20x20 will be a live test of the Design Process blueprint authored by the Design Institute.
