Design For a Difference

Make a Statement with Your Design has been described as “the first ever community-driven movement” that brings socially conscious design-driven flooring showrooms together with interior designers and other businesses to transform much-needed spaces at local charities with the help of designers, volunteer labor, donations, and other resources. The International Design Guild, which includes high-end flooring retailers such as FLOOR360 in Madison and Milwaukee, was the driving force behind the movement’s inception.

The Rainbow Project, based in Madison, Wisconsin, was selected as the 2016 charity recipient.

East Madison Community Center underwent a complete interior renovation in 2018, and Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center received a complete interior makeover in 2019.

FLOOR360 is a non-profit organization that organizes and manages interior makeovers of non-profit facilities.

Please join us in our effort to transform the NAZ office space! DFAD (Design for a Difference) is a community-driven initiative that connects socially minded flooring stores together with interior designers to transform desperately needed spaces at non-profit organizations. Our Minneapolis makeover beneficiary for this year has been picked by INTERSOURCE, Inc., and it is the Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ). We feel that the work done by NAZ is critical to narrowing the achievement gap and putting an end to generational poverty in our neighborhood.

According to the findings of the study, the primary explanation for this outcome is that workplace design has an influence on employee moods and well-being.

This renovation will provide a secure and functional workspace for the 24 committed Family Achievement Coaches who assist 2,400 Scholars, as well as the opportunity to recharge in order to continue to strive for excellence in their demanding employment.

In order to move forward with this program, we need your help. We are presently gathering donations to support our efforts; please consider donating now!

Design for a Difference BeforeAfter Photo Gallery

This year’s Showcase House provided us with the opportunity to collaborate with twenty-four other interior designers. Designer Lisa’s entryway, powder room, staircase, and upstairs hallway were finally completed after a year in the making. Design by Lisa was responsible for the whole project. We really like how light and airy our Chateau Powder Bath came out!

Gracie’s Room

To design Roman’s bedroom, we had the pleasure to collaborate with Gracie’s Room and the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the fall of 2013. A congenital cardiac abnormality known as single ventricle pulmonary atresia caused Roman to be born prematurely. He underwent a heart transplant in August at the age of sixteen and remained in the hospital for three months. When he got home, he was able to see the transformation of his ideal bedroom for the first time.


This past autumn, we had the pleasure to collaborate with other local designers, Bridging, and the team from Design for a Difference to transform Bridging’s FOUND IT! Estate Store in Bloomington, Minnesota into something spectacular. The project was the brainchild of Lucy Interior Design and Intersource, who brought together businesses and interior designers to transform the store before hosting a Reveal Party to show off the amazing results of their collaboration. Lucy Interior Design and Intersource were the driving forces behind the project.


We chose to utilize a floating cabinet rather than a cabinet that was flush with the floor to assist create a more open feeling in the area. Removed the soffit above the vanity, the ceiling seemed much taller, and raising the tile backsplash up to the ceiling served to create a sense of height in the space while also adding interest to the wall on which the backsplash was placed. An other approach to create the illusion of greater height in the area was through the use of pendant lights.

Wine Room Remodel

We are delighted that our wine room renovation has been highlighted in the Star Tribune. Previously, this room served as a storage area that had not been completed. With this addition, the homeowners now have a space that is dedicated to their passion and interest and links to the living area, which is located just off the wine room.

Mid-Century Modern Library, Showcase House- 2014

This comfortable library sitting space brings this mid-century home to a close. We created this room keeping the male homeowner in mind, as he lives with three other females in his household. Not only is the sofa custom-sized to provide for maximum relaxation, but the space also has a manly air to it, reminiscent of “Mad Men.”

Revamped Mudroom

This mudroom has little storage and was not designed to satisfy the needs of a busy family. Because we listened to our client’s requirements, we were able to modify the space and turn it into a significant gathering place in the house. Shoeshine bench with storage, adjustable hooks that will grow with the children, phone charging station, handbag cubby and cookbook shelf are just some of the customizations included in the package.

Also, don’t forget about the several cabinets above, where it is common to have a significant amount of wasted space.

Cottage Chic Bathroom

These Yellow Slat-Boards, custom made cabinets with Carrara marble top, rustic sconces, and a beveled mirror to die for make this Cottage Chic Bathroom a dream come true.

Modern Lined Kitchen

The open shelving in this Modern Kitchen design creates a feeling of spaciousness while also including open areas and linear lines. It is the pops of blue color in the accessories and artwork that really give this design a good kick!

Design for good: 8 ways to use your creativity to make a difference

Design for good is more than simply a cliche or a catchphrase. Designers are more aware than ever before of the need of using their talents to make a positive difference in the world. When put into action, creating in this manner may benefit both your agency and the job you do there. A genuine emotional engagement is frequently at the heart of the matter — working with charity can be both meaningful and rewarding in ways that commercial employment simply cannot be matched. Small and large creative studios alike may make an effort to incorporate charitable work in their mandate, and those who do it successfully are not shy about letting their clients know about it.

  1. But knowing that you are making a meaningful impact may be a powerful motivator for generating your best work in the long run (and can be a great way to spruce up your portfolio, see our favouritedesign portfoliosfor some inspiration on that front).
  2. Due to the high volume of people in the world, charities must be extremely clear about who they are, what they do, and why they exist if they are to engage with supporters, partners, and colleagues.
  3. “They need to be crystal clear about their purpose, their vision, and the problem they’re here to solve before they can begin.
  4. A classic ‘command and control’ approach was utilized by charities to manage their brands in the past.

01. Don’t rely on tugging the heartstrings

The One Feeds Two identity of The Clearings is put into effect (Image credit: One Feeds Two) The Clearing collaborated with the charity One Feeds Two to design a brand with mass-market appeal that would serve as a reputable commercial partner as well as a simple yet powerful option for customers looking to make a difference. In order to attract new business relationships and boost awareness of One Feeds Two’s cause, the agency created a straightforward visual and spoken brand that was both basic and obvious.

  1. After consulting with charity founders, food partners, and potential consumers, the agency developed a one-for-one proposition that connects the experience of purchasing food with the effect of supplying food to those in need of food.
  2. (Photo courtesy of Byron Burgers.) By building a reputable brand with The Clearing, One Feeds Two has shook up the crowded charity sector, gaining the support of national partners such as Bryon Burgers, Higgidy Pies, Mindful Chef, and Baker Miller, to mention a few examples.
  3. Almost all of these meal donations come through partner activities, accounting for about 99 percent of total donations.
  4. “We were seeking for a charity partner that mirrored Byron’s distinctive and straightforward attitude, as well as having a strong and eye-catching design.

A number of things stood out right away: it had a strong logo that could communicate the idea without explanation, a beautifully designed visual identity that made us smile, and we were confident that it would work well alongside our own brand on menus, leaflets, and other printed and electronic materials.” Three years later, Byron has been responsible for the delivery of a million meals and the education of more than 5,000 youngsters.

“It gives us great pleasure to collaborate with the charity,” Fedi explains.

02. User experience can be powerful

The Calm Harm app invites users to engage with characters in order to more effectively regulate their emotions (Image credit: Calm Harm) Digital agency with a focus on health, science, and technology HMAworks on a diverse variety of projects, ranging from the design and development of websites, applications, and other digital tools, to the marketing of digital products and services, to name a few examples.

  • Its clientele includes a variety of philanthropic organizations, including stem4, with whom it began working in 2016 to relaunch theCalm Harmapp, a mindfulness app.
  • Nihara Krause with the goal of assisting youth in resisting or managing the temptation to self-harm via the use of supportive, evidence-based dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) procedures, according to the developer.
  • HMA managing director Nicola Tiffany states that the major goal of the company’s brief was to provide a more engaging user experience by making the design and visual features of the app more appealing to the app’s adolescent target demographic so that they would feel comfortable using it.
  • In order to determine the user experience and tone of voice, Tiffany and her team considered intended outputs, user journeys, visual concepts, security/privacy considerations, and security/privacy concerns.
  • Following your ride on the wave, the need will subside.” It is possible for users to learn to’surf the wave’ by completing five- or fifteen-minute exercises that contain information that is based on evidence-based DBT approaches.

03. Don’t assume all charities are good

Not all applications are founded on scientifically sound assumptions, even if they have excellent intentions. (Photo courtesy of Calm Harm) “While it appears to be a saturated industry, there is a genuine demand for high-quality, evidence-based applications to help individuals in a variety of clinical and non-clinical settings,” Tiffany says. It was discovered that, according to the ORCHA (Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps), which conducts independent assessments of apps for NHS Digital, there are over 327,000 apps claiming to help us stay healthy or manage our health (an increase of 990 per cent from the 30,000 apps available in 2013), but only approximately 112,000 of these apps are looked after, updated, and maintained.

When you go deeper into the review of these, you’ll find that only around 15,000 of them are secure, clinically safe, or have been designed to meet industry standards.

With over one million downloads in less than two years, the app has won multiple accolades and, as a result of the external exposure it has garnered, has helped to increase the visibility of both stem4 and HMA.

04. Get the right help

(Image courtesy of The Wayback Machine) Grey London’s creative team, in collaboration with executive producers atThomas Thomas Films, came up with the concept for The Wayback after talking about their own family members’ experiences with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The founder of Grey London, Dan Cole, states, “We all felt that we wanted to do something to make some kind of difference.” “Alzheimer’s disease is a particularly challenging condition for families to deal with because there appears to be nothing that can be done.

They were fascinated by the concept of virtual reality.

According to Cole, “we believed that by creating a video that was as realistic as possible, in the sense that it looked and sounded like a moment from their memory, it might assist ignite some remembrance.” “We chose the Queen’s coronation in 1953 as the subject of our pilot film only because many people in the United Kingdom over the age of 70 would have some remembrance of this event.

  1. See our shopping guide for the top virtual reality headsets.
  2. “It took numerous phone calls, emails, and tweets, as well as the generosity of some very nice people.
  3. ” The team also spoke with Dr.
  4. We were preoccupied from the beginning with the idea that the video should be so authentic that it nearly appeared to be archive footage.
  5. This means we’d need an accurate clothing, sets, and hundreds of extras to complete the look.” In addition, the team self-funded thousands of cardboard VR viewers to be sent to nursing facilities.

Following the publication of the film, the project received a number of prizes, including the D AD, SXSW, Creative Circle, and The Art of Creativity award, earning it a permanent home in the British Film Archive’s collection.

05. Pick something you really care about

“From a professional standpoint, it’s been a great learning curve to be our own client, making choices on everything from budget to public relations,” Cole says. “I believe that individuals are most motivated by issues that are dear to their hearts, as well as by their own personal experiences.” He says that reaching out to individuals who have personal experience with a problem and who have a set of creative abilities that may be used to bring about change should be a key stage in any social project’s development process.

06. Check out AIGA’s Design for Good initiative

The American Institute of Graphic Arts’ Get Out the Vote campaign uses design to encourage participation in the pivotal 2016 United States elections. The campaign was an important component of the ongoing Design for Democracy effort of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA). (Image credit: Rich Hollant and Kevin Garrison) Creative director for a Seattle-based advertising firm Gage Mitchell, of Modern Species and an AIGA member, is a member of a task force/committee of socially responsible and environmentally conscious design thought leaders that is driving the AIGA Design for Goodinitiative.

According to Mitchell, lasting transformation continues even when you are no longer alive.

“If designers are involved in projects that have an impact on the community and are perceived as a convener of groups that can solve community problems, they will be standing alongside attorneys, accountants, and community leaders who recognize the effectiveness of bringing creativity to any problem that has multiple dimensions,” says Grefé.

It defines what is meant by good design, weaves in sustainability and inclusive design practices, and serves as a resource for people who want to lead communities and organizations through the process using different strategy and design thinking methods, according to Mitchell.

The AIGA Path to Influence workbook suggests that designers might aspire to have an impact on the environment, society, culture and the economy through their work.

In other words, once you stop thinking about design as a product (the item that has to be designed), and instead as a process (framing the problem, ideating and assessing ideas, and so on), you’ll find yourself applying the same techniques in other areas of life and work as well.

07. You don’t need to work for free

The Clearing for One Feeds Two has created another another collection of assets (Image credit: One Feeds Two) Working alongside Gage Mitchell on the AIGA Design for Good taskforce, Rule29’s founder and creative director Justin Ahrens says that the most important mindset shift that has to take place is the belief that work should be done for the benefit of others. “In order for us to complete a project, the client must make a financial commitment. Whether it is symbolic or not, the important thing is that everyone participating is devoted.

It’s truly about knowing what’s important and getting an education.” Good charities must now think of themselves more as companies with a social mission in order to thrive in today’s world.

“Part of that investment in their brands is paying their partners, and while we may work at a discounted rate, we do not operate on a pro gratis basis in general.” Design for good is about applying strategic design ideas and methods to achieve positive outcomes and make a positive influence on the world.

While Mitchell believes it is not difficult to find firms that are ready to perform occasional pro bono work for non-profits, he believes it is difficult to find agencies that understand how to design for a long-term and quantifiable benefit.

Using strategic design thinking and techniques to achieve positive outcomes and effect is what design for good is all about.” This may include informing a non-profit that a brochure isn’t going to solve their problem and instead encouraging them to co-design a more impactful solution (which may be something entirely different) with their fellow stakeholders,” says Mitchell, who believes designers should encourage their corporate clients to think beyond profit/sales goals and consider reducing upstream waste and/or providing additional value to the community they’re serving.

Ultimately, while it isn’t ‘difficult’ in the traditional sense, it isn’t now considered the default approach in the design community.

08. Think about all your projects

According to Mitchell, creating for a good cause does not always imply designing for free or at a discount for a non-profit. “You may design at your full rate for a for-profit corporation while still having a beneficial influence on the world around you. As a result, I would push creatives to move beyond the attitude of ‘occasional discounted work for a non-profit’ and instead consider how they can include social impact into every project, into their basic principles as a creative, and into their business model.

Why should we restrict our “pro bono” work to five percent of our time if a superhero doesn’t limit his or hers to that percentage?” According to Hubbard, positive change can only be achieved if the cause is clearly defined, compelling, and motivating for others to get involved.

Designing A Difference

Designing A Difference began in November 2012 with a monthly volunteer gathering and the distribution of meals to those in need. Since then, the organization has grown. It was discovered that the efforts had gotten an enormous level of support from the community, which resulted in a strong, constant group of volunteers and financiers, with each month’s efforts being more successful than the previous one. We’ve made headlines and captured the attention of scores of news and media sites, bringing attention to the cause of assisting our needy neighbors.

The encouragement she got as a result of this movement inspired the organization’s originator, Rebecca Cahua, to do even more.

Cahua pondered and studied for a year before developing a strategy that would not only utilize her own work, but also the efforts of other creatives in the San Francisco design community, among other things.


Homelessness in the city is a problem that cannot be ignored or minimized. More than 6,400 homeless people are officially registered in San Francisco, and it is practically certain that you will come across a homeless person in every area in the city. Although the city has made significant efforts, there has been little change over the years. Since the 1980s, the garment manufacturing business in San Francisco has seen a dramatic reduction in employment. Since then, the majority of textile manufacturing enterprises have relocated to other countries.

Because of this, hundreds of fashion industry students, businesses, and designers graduate each year and migrate away from the Bay Area’s fashion hub.

By merging these two challenges, we are “Designing A Difference.”
