AIGA Design Conference (2005) - D.I.Y.

"If we teach them design, they will value us more."
-Ellen Lupton

While not exactly a member of the Church of Craft, Ellen Lupton did proclaim her faith in democratic creativity with the imminent release of her latest Book: DIY (Design it Yourself).

Sharing a long history of DIY, Ellen impressed us with 50's housewife toaster repair, The Last Whole Earth Catalog, Martha Stewart's aspirational DIY, and how to build a casket from IKEA flat-pack.

Ellen's sure to ruffle a few feathers in the design community with her open attitude, but I love her commitment to all of us applying design theory to everyday situations.
