Women in Design has Rebranded!

SMcMullen : July 16, 2017 2:11 pm : Blog

The Women in Design Steering Committee is excited to reveal the latest brand for our members and design community.  The committee brainstormed with our own keen-eyed experts and consulted with graphic designers to create artful, modern and meaningful visuals for communication through new colors, fonts and patterns. 

Colors will now distinguish the events hosted by our different committees.  First Tuesday Recess events are represented by green, our two large, annual Events are purple, orange is Educational, yellow is community Outreach, Networking events are cyan, and gray represents Membership.  

Each of the different square patterns represent each WID member. All the pattern elements together represent all WiD members supporting each other, working together and creating something bigger and more beautiful than their individual work.

zero-landfill-flyer

We are happy to announce that ZeroLandfillDenver (ZLD) has been adopted by Women in Design, Denver.  We are now looking for a new location to host this much-needed program so we need your help! If you are interested in donating space or volunteering with ZLD please contact WiDInfo@widdenver.org Keep reading for more details!
 

About the Program:

ZeroLandfill is an award-winning up cycling program held seasonally that diverts expired specification samples and supports the needs of local artists and art educators while reducing pressure on local landfill capacity.
 
POLLINATION:
Collection of materials from design firms to collection site during a specific window of time.
Collection requirements
  • Firms will bring Discontinued, expired or unused  samples only form their Designer library.  No paper or product catalogs or tip cards allowed.
  • Sort items by type in boxes with firm/organization name clearly marked
  • If possible, remove binders and/or backing and recycle at your home or workplace.
CULTIVATE:
Seperation, sorting and weighing of samples. Volunteers needed.  Dates/ times to be determined.
This is often a fun, bonding interaction with amazing people from the community.
 
HARVEST:
The public comes to take samples away for their use.

Host Site Space Requirements:

1. Warehouse room or a space to house collections of outdated/discontinued materials (100 s.f. min. is ideal)  This can be short term (4-6 weeks) 2-4 times a year

      OR  A permanent space so the collections can be collected and managed all year long from designers.  We still plan to only have 2-4 Harvest days open to the public (unless a site is open to letting people collect at any time.)
      OR Parking spaces in an exterior lot or along a building for a storage container (8’x48’ standard shipping container)

2. Parking for public during Harvest days.  10+ cars ideal

3. Accessibility to one designated person in charge

4. Room for staging space in or near the storage for Sorting and weighing

 

Wish List:

1.  Designate space full time so that collections can be taken and sorted all year. (scheduled by a volunteer)

2.  Above warehouse space plus use of box pallets and a fork lift.

3.  Access to a parking lot so public can remain outside during Harvest days.

4.  Access to a large Industrial scale

 

Sponsorships:

 If you do not have a site or space to provide, your company can still help support ZLD and WID.
  • Give money as Primary Sponsor $500 (logo on all print)
  • Donate money for items needed (i.e.: storage container, tools, gloves, events…)
  • Sponsor a Cultivate/Harvest day by providing food and beverages (Event coverage and product display)

Involvement:

Please let us know if you are interested in any of the following:
  • Core team volunteer (committee on WiD steering committee)
  • Volunteer for sorting or Harvest days
  • Produce up-cycled items as examples to share with the public
  • Want to be notified of Harvest (collection) days only
  • Material Accountability volunteer (meet people at collection site as needed)

  • Sponsor
