What if we built and powered a network of public benefit studios in under invested in communities that created, made & invented business models, products and services that make the world work for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone?
The Studio is designed to be the built home of the DesignedByUs.org Design Corps and its boot strapped Distinguished Designers and Design Apprentices. Modeled after the Bauhaus 2.0 movement, The Studio will provide a physical and digital maker space architected as a fab lab that equips a new generation of public service designers, civic media makers and technologists a place they can call home.
Our vision is to power a network of public benefit studios in under represented and under invested in communities that create, make and invent products, services and things that will make the world work, for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.
The Designed By Us™ Studio Programs introduce anyone from a underrepresented communitiies to a hands on #S.T.E.A.M.D. (Science. Technology. Engineering. Arts. Math and Design) education and apprenticeship. Each of the studio programs utilizes modern design methods, ethics and technology to create hands-on learning experiences that immerse, instruct and incubate creative and design talent. The Design Corps' Distinguished Designers, Apprentices and Volunteers (motivated changemakers) are deployed as teams to work side by side with local leaders to tackle the most pressing challenges of our generation.
Our Public Services Design and Civic tech programing endeavors to shape leaders to deeply understand and solve systemic problems while setting a foundation for design, business, data and tech accumen. This program balances thinking big, artfully inventing the future while cultivating creative and design leaders to deliver results within the constraints of now.
