Design responsibilty can be fun. My students and I were approached with a project to help a local chapter of the Salvation Army. There is a popular game called Cornholing where people throw a bean bag through the hole to score points, and the Salvation Army had come to us with a few beat up boards and a request. There is festival for children called the Manatee Children’s Summit that the Salvation Army runs every year. They asked if we would design something for the festival that would cleanly represent who the Salvation Army is, but still be fun. Knowing there will be lots of media at the event, we wanted to clearly advertise the Salvation Army. My students had a blast designing these and learning that our work can make a difference in our community.
