Design For The Other 90%

The National Geographic Museum will open a new exhibition this Wednesday, April 28 called Design for the Other 90%, a touring exhibition from the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in NYC. The exhibition takes a look at designers who are developing solutions that address basic needs for the vast majority of the world’s population not traditionally served by professional designers. Of the world’s 6.5 billion people, 90% have few to none of the basic necessities required for progress and survival.

  3. The last advice I can give you is to keep at it. Don’t give up simply because you don’t have an idea. Go for a walk, get some air, go for a drive, go get some food, or do some thing that can assist your brain work, and then you can get some ideas. In no way give up, and push via the writer’s obstruct, simply because some thing brilliant is bound to come out of writer’s block.
