We are in the process of deciding on a logo for the project. We have great design choices proposed by Lifepatch member Antirender.
In the mean while, I saw that we were hash-tagged for biodesign. This led to a google search and a realization that biodesign is…. a lot of things ranging from: Academic Institution Programs, Biopharmaceuticals, Biotechnology reagent providers, Prosthetics/Orthotics, Tissue Engineering, also an art and science book sold by MoMA on design and art dealing with living systems. There is even a “REAL WORLD” (Stanford) biodesign, which turns out to be an article on conflict management.
And the logos run a range – the main running theme is a shade of green although there are some exceptions –
Conceptually, there is BIO- as in life and living systems, and bio- as in biology, and sometimes more specifically tissue engineering, molecular biology, biomedical engineering…
DESIGN, as in product design, technology and engineering design
While the blog is called biodesign.cc, let’s not forget our research project is called BIO-DESIGN for the REAL WORLD. The REAL WORLD part was inspired by Victor Papenak’s Design for the Real World: Human Ecology and Social Change, and Yashas gave us this name. What we want to do is a little different: give BIO-DESIGN a context, out of the lab and the design studio, and into the real world, our communities.
So here are some highlights –
