Desgn.it Tahoe – Video and Recap

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of heading out to Tahoe with 20+ amazing people for our third Desgn.it event. For those who don’t know, Desgn.it is Elefint’s series of events where we pair good causes with designers for a day, or in this case a whole weekend.

We invited nonprofits to apply for two spots, and we narrowed the applicants down to two fantastic organizations. CONSERVATION STRATEGY FUND combines economic and ecological analysis to make more holistic and intelligent decisions, while CITY FARM SHARE is paving the way to make resources to urban agriculture and community farms readily available.

We rented a beautiful house on the lake and spent a weekend together. While designers worked, the nonprofits attended a series of workshops on Service Design, Marketing, and Storytelling with Video. We also cooked and ate great food, some of which was donated by some awesome organizations.

In addition to leading a workshop, our video expert Rian Devos made this beautiful film. At five minutes, it’s a little longer than some videos on the web, but we really wanted to capture the depth of what happened and we hope you’ll enjoy it.

This year’s event made it clear that when awesome people get together, we can leverage talent to do a large amount of amazing work for good causes in an incredibly short time.

We are currently planning a few more Desgn.it events, and we’d love to get your input on ideas for new groups we can work with, projects we can create, themes, etc.
