Cause Consulting was proud to be a Youth Design partner and the sponsor of the 2011 Youth Design Time to Design Competition. This past summer, the urban high school teens in the Youth Design Internship program were tasked to design an image or a message about a social issue that was important to them. Over a seven week period, they were required to select and research social issues, develop design concepts, work with expert design mentors, go through two rounds of professional design reviews, and submit their work to a panel of expert judges. The final designs were nothing short of amazing.
We are honored to share the ten top designs with you. Click here to see them all. Congratulations to Joseph Soto for his powerful winning piece on how smoking can kill your whole body and mind. Joseph spent his paid Youth Design summer internship at Blue Cross of Massachusetts and worked with his mentors to create this powerful piece of work.
You too can spread messages of the top three Youth Designers. Early this fall you can buy a one-of a-kind t-shirts celebrating the three winning designs at Karmaloop. 100% of the proceeds will go to support Youth Design, so make sure to get yours. Shoot us an email, and we’ll remind you when they become available. Also read about Nikki’s experience at this year’s Youth Design Graduation.
Why Youth Design? At Cause Consulting we believe that design has the power to inspire others and motivate them to take actions that can change the world. To get inspired, read about Youth Design through the young people’s voices on the Youth Design blog.
