Why do you want to be OpenIDEO's Visual and User Experience Designer?
Having designed for companies that couldn't be more uncaring and opportunistic, I'm at a point where I'm compelled to give back. I have great admiration for IDEO and their creative, crazy-smart people. I've also been fascinated to see the successes of the OpenIDEO concept and its crowdsourcing platform, and I'd like to experience it from the inside. I'm ending a contract soon and would love to achieve my bucket list dreams of being an IDEOer and truly designing for the betterment of humanity.

What did you learn when developing the deliverables in response to the design brief?
My intent was to do a poster, and my explorations began in a playful vein. But, as I iterated, the design became asceptic and moody (see images). I was stuck on the phrase "Because even a crazy half-baked idea might just save humanity," as it's a compelling hook — you don't have to be a great mind to affect great change. And it's this phrase that drew me back to my original illustrations, and from there, stickers! Sometimes the journey is about building confidence in the original spark.
