Graphic design - Graphic Competitions - Design For (Your) Product Lifetime Challenge
Organized by Core77 and sponsored by Autodesk and ifixit, this contest challenges designers to design a smart product that is smarter environmentally; a product that can be repaired and will stand the test of time, even if some of its components need to be replaced. We throw away millions of tons of electronics worldwide each year. This creates not only toxic pollutants in our air and waterways, but also leads to loss in valuable materials. Disposable, non-repairable electronic products put an enormous strain on ecological systems: they create enormous amounts of e-waste and require a constant stream of raw materials and energy. Repair and recycling is thwarted by design decisions: glued-in batteries, irreplaceable parts, and confusing interfaces. By transforming user interactions, expectations and behavior, designers can change the end-of-life and environmental impacts of the things they design. There is no entry fee. Eligibility This contest is open to students age 18 or older, from anywhere in the world, currently registered in an educational institution at the college/university level or 2012 graduates.
