Last year, IxDA SF, AIGA SF(Graphic Design Association), and IDSA SF (Industrial Design Association) came together for a program/competition focused on sustainable design called Digging Deeper.

This was a follow up an event IDSA did a couple of years ago and a pilot for what we hope to be many more design thinking workshops and opportunities for folks to work in multi-disciplinary teams to come up with meaningful, tangible and implementable solutions on the local level.  The theme was urban farming.

We invite you to  vote in the Digging Deeper people's choice award (and spread the word) here:  http://diggingdeepersf.ning.com/

Footage from yesterday when the Mayor thanks the design community for bringing creative solutions to the city and breaks ground on a new uban farm plot near civic center:

 We are all pretty excited about this as you can imagine and look forward to more collaborations in the future.
