Design helps us envision the ideal: living in a happy and healthy society. But what are the challenges that block our path? Cutting through the bureaucracy that hampers the growth and use of good ideas for public good, Design Co.Mission presents solutions on how to proceed.
Design Co.Mission is a passion project of Plus63 Design Co., a creative studio with a goal to make design matter. We conceptualized this project because we want people to be inspired with new ideas, connect with fellow designers who produce exciting work, and get government onboard to launch these solutions.
Design Co.Mission is a channel for designers to present ideas that can positively impact the way we live. We commission creatives with design challenges on how to improve public services, present new solutions, and strengthen branding - to make what we feel is important not only matter to a select few, but to also change people’s experiences for the better.
We will share these design solutions with key organizations and members of the Philippine government through a show-and-tell event. We hope this platform opens up meaningful conversations, collaborations, and cooperation with one another. We are aiming for fruitful and successful partnerships.
The Design Co.Mission Merit Badge presents the tools that help shape the ideas, concepts and art of the designer. Featuring analog and digital tools and its seamless integration in the craft of the designer, it is a fitting mark that symbolizes our practice.
Through design, we present how we can achieve the best experiences and solutions.
Where do we want to go? What do we want to achieve? We articulate the problem we want to solve.
Understand the terrain and challenges faced by communities to explore.
With attention to detail and craft, we create the best possible solutions to the challenge.
Stamp our unique voice and perspective on the project.
Our goal is to uplift the life of every Filipino. Let’s come together and celebrate the best of who we are!
The majority lacks access to better healthcare. The high costs of medicine and hospital bills discourage people from seeking preventive health measures until they’ve reached a crucial point. We need to empower people to take better care of themselves and their families, and how reaching out to a community beyond their immediate circle of family and friends can create a safety net for one another.
Reconstructing our curricula and classrooms have yet to show its impact on improving the state of public education. On a personal level, we need to enlighten every person’s capacity to creatively think beyond limitations. With that in mind, we hope to rekindle the sense of pride, imagination, and determination in our educational administrators, teachers, students, and parents to succeed for the sake of the country’s future.
Culture mirrors the state of our society - with the arts as our measuring stick. We need to make people appreciate our rich heritage and band together to support a healthy society of artists, designers, craftspeople and cultural workers.
