The Michael Kilbane idea is very good and it was my favourite for a while.

I'd have to vote for Dylan Snow's idea though. The idea of maintaining the community is really improtant. Maintaining the community means the community would be able to provide support for itself and facilitate the dissemination of aid.

Sorry about that, dbpuyo

Here is the link to my coroflot page http://www.coroflot.com/michaelkilbane .The image can be found there. I will also email it over to you.
Now I guess its time to vote. Firstly I would like to say that all the designs are impressive, and it was hard to narrow it down to just one. (Well done everyone :D ).

So the shelter design, I’m selecting is “The box shelter” by jurrasix (James Sloss) :wink:
Well done :D

Did I miss the announcement of the winner?

Michael Kilbane, I think yours is a really clever approach. Envious that nothing even close to it came up in my quick thumbs.

I'll start off by saying that I think this competition generated some really great concepts, showing true ingenuity and skills.

Having said that, I cannot help but wonder if we, through events such as this one, end up generating more good self esteem than actual results – both on the side of the spectator (myself included) and that of the creators.

The question we need to ask ourselves is: will this competition end up serving those we intend to help?

Good intentions are undoubtably floating about in the design community, especially in times of crises. So I guess what I'm asking is: what can we designers do to ensure that our intentions have the impact they merit?

As it is, I think we're serving ourselves more than those we actually want to help.

This 'question" deserves a topic of its own in general discussion. So please create it :) I'm sure there will be some interessting opinions/discussions.(far more interesting than the sneakers you bought because you couldn't resist the looks)

I for one am fully aware of my ego. It's big! But it is also part of my motivation.

Please make the tread ;)
