DATposter

 Typographer par excellence Lisa Sy ’13 sez:

TypeClub will present a film screening of DESIGN & THINKING, which is a documentary that explores “design thinking.”
A description of the movie:
How do we fully engage organizations to think about the changing landscape of business, culture and society? Inspired by design thinking, this documentary grabs businessman, designers, social change-makers and individuals to portrait what they have in common when facing this ambiguous 21st century. What is design thinking? How is it applied in business models? How are people changing the worldwith their own creative minds? It is a call to the conventional minds to change and collaborate.Learn more about TypeClub at  [ http://typeclub.org ]

WILDWes Comes to the ‘Tube

“clean, green, smooth, well-kept, well-maintained…it’s attractive”

Before you whip out the greenface and then raze that Novembeard-turned-finals-beard, that quote isn’t excerpted from the updated College Prowler description for attractive Wesleyan students (sorry to disappoint).  No, but while you’re sitting at home wondering what you used to do before finals anyway, check out what WILDWes has been up to.

The video, by Erin O’Donnell ’12 and Ofer Levy ’12, tells us some cool facts about landscaping in the United States and some of the WILDWes organizers take us through the process.  There are some great shots of mulching and the Sustainable Landscape Design student forum from this semester.  President Michael Roth and others involved, such as from Physical Plant, express their support as well.  Just watch the video already.

You can also check out more about WILDWes on their website.
