A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

EDUN: Who Made Your T-Shirt?








In a recent TIME Magazine article, Wendy Cole takes a look at EDUN— a for profit socially conscious clothing company launched in Spring 2005 by Ali Hewson and Bono with New York clothing designer Rogan Gregory.

Working on a micro-level to help build the skill set of EDUN's factory base, they act as a voice to encourage the fashion community to do business in Africa as a means to bring the continent out of extreme poverty, and works to help build sustainable communities.
