AIGA Design for Good and Field Innovation Team (FIT),
a disaster response non-profit, recently held the Disruptive Design 4 Disasters
contest to challenge designers to create
solutions for relief scenarios based on rapid prototyping. When
disaster strikes, there isn’t time for months, or even weeks, of
rigorous research. After a
disaster, FIT volunteers, including designers, apply their expertise
to ideate quickly, offer a potential solution, gather feedback and
they get it right.
