BLIGHT IS A MAGAZINE WHICH HOSTS DESIGN CONVERSATIONS ABOUT URBAN ISSUES BY INVESTIGATING THE UNDER REPRESENTED AND OVEREXPOSED.
The third issue identifies the everyday phenomenon of “broken design” as the platform for creativity which arises from inquiry.
Designers and collaborators look at broken designs and dissect them until opportunity shines through. Today, we are encouraged to fail fast, cheap and hard, trying out many different ideas to arrive at the best solutions. Through failure and iteration, is it possible to anticipate and avoid broken design or is it an evolutionary enigma? We invite you to explore cross disciplinary connections, solutions and processes with us through the lens of design.

G Diaper Product Design
Our team developed a pre-composting diaper pail to integrate all soiled compostable diapers into any composting system.
With help from gDiapers, a compostable diaper company, we were able to test and gain valuable insights to develop this product.
Diapers containing human pathogens are introduced into landfills when they have the potential to be composted.
Our team constructed a unique product to make it safe to compost all diapers.
The Current System
The problem, diapers are contributing to landfill waste.
The Current System
Compostable diapers are great! However, solid waste is a biohazard and is not safe to compost.
Introducing the Bellwether
Using the Bellwether, parents can eliminate pathogens in the diaper pail before composting.
The New System
The Bellwether helps close the nutrient cycle and eliminates landfill contribution from diapers.
Nature’s Insight is a brainstorming game that draws from natural examples, human problems and life’s principles to generate new ideas. The game educates users about biomimicry and illuminates the inspirational insights life’s principles have to offer. All ideas are welcome. The goal is for participants to expand their thinking while increasing awareness of sustainability in design and actively incorporating life’s principles. As participants play, they learn that life’s principles are not a constraint, but rather inspiration for more innovative ideas than previously imagined. The game is versatile and can be adapted to any discipline.
Nature's Insight Card Deck
Our team simplified the board game concept into a deck of three types of cards that allow for three different types of game play.
