Designing A Museum is a social network
Design for social good (or humanitarian design, if you prefer) is creeping up all around us, and Hong Kong is no different. I had the opportunity to spend some time with designers Hung Lam (left in the photograph) and Eddy Yu (right in the photograph). A few years ago they started their second venture called CoLab. Their first is the design firm CoDesign, Yu and Lam's graphics and branding studio. At first, CoLab also provided branding services, but for socially minded businesses. CoLab has quickly expanded. As Yu and Lam say, CoLab has two meanings: collaboration and laboratory. CoLab aims to provide a platform for "collaboration" with young designers and a "laboratory" for project experimentation. …Continue

It’s been a while since our last update and a LOT has happened! First and most importantly, we’ve made our Kickstarter goal! And in just 15 days at that! So far we’ve raised $5,401 dollars and the number keeps rising with two days to go.
