Good Causes

We’re proud to do work for all our clients. Over the years, some projects have been extra-special, contributing far and beyond the call of duty. Led by superheroes, these projects really made a difference and we’re pleased to showcase some of them here.

Partners in Design relishes the opportunity to empower these projects with the best communication powers possible. It’s one of the most important reasons why we design—to care for the earth, to foster diversity, humanity, equal rights and access to education.

From anti-bullying (safe schools organizations), land conservation (environmental advocacy), poverty (global aid), and civil rights (campaigns), to protecting our neighborhoods against violence (advocacy outreach), powerful design can broadcast a stronger message….to help our superheroes do their jobs.

As the pandemic continues to unfold, kids as well as their parents are struggling with this new normal—social distancing, wearing masks, remote learning. Our 24-page Kids’ Guide to the Coronavirus is part-science, part-comic and 100% reassuring at a time when children need to know that even in a world that can sometimes seem big and scary, most people are good, they can make a difference, and every single tiny act of kindness matters. You can download digital copies (free at this link) in English, Spanish, Chinese, French and Italian. Please share widely!

We are proud to continue our sponsorship of the Partners in Design Climate Action Fellowship, offered and administered by the Civita Institute, to increase awareness of our changing climate and encourage actions that can be taken by architects, planners, designers, artists, writers and other arts professionals to contribute to a more sustainable societal response.
