Design Rebels Unite
More designers than ever want to do good, but in the real world, the details can become tricky. How do you pursue meaningful projects and still pay the rent? What’s the best way to figure out your own professional ethics? How do you make a difference beyond pro bono projects? We’ve lined up four design rebels to talk about how they make a difference and make a living at Design Rebels Unite!

Mobilizing Around Sandy
While much of the city is back up and running, some area have been seriously devastated by Sandy and need ongoing interventions. I'm looking for ways to utilize our group to mobilize for Sandy. Have you started a campaign, benefit or are connected to an organization that is seeking Sandy relief? Please feel free to contact me to discuss joining forces or use the message board/this list serve to spread the word.
