Veer Issues Special Edition T-shirt to Raise Funds for Hurricane Victims

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006 at 4:26 pm

In November 2005, Veer, a provider of visual elements and design-related products to the creative community, released of a special edition Creative Care T-shirt to help raise funds for hurricane victims in the United States. Veer is pleased to present the AIGA Disaster Relief Fund with the enclosed check.

The T-shirt features the word “Creatives Care” hand-lettered by Marian Bantjes, who donated the design for this cause. Profits from the Creatives Care campaign have been divided between the AIGA’s Disaster Relief Fund and the American Red Cross. The T-shirt sells for $22 USD and is available at: veer.com/care.

This T-shirt is a small way for Veer to help bring the design community together. Veer reaches hundreds of thousands of design professionals through our monthly catalogs and other communications - we thought we could use this reach to help. >From this campaign, we’ve seen that great things can heppen when the design community is beckoned.

Yours truly,
Marla Clarke
Veer

SPD Donates $1o,000 to AIGA Relief Fund

Saturday, September 24th, 2005 at 4:47 pm

The Society of Publication Designers has donated $10,000 to the AIGA Disaster Relief Fund, and another $10,000 to help students at Department of Art at Mississippi State University. This is the email sent from SPD:

Our community needs our help. Many designers and design students in the areas affected by Hurricane Katrina have lost their homes and businesses, had their studies interrupted, lost files and equipment, and are struggling to cope with the aftermath of this disaster, and even more bad weather on the way. The Board of SPD has searched for ways to help.

On behalf of all SPD members, we are donating a total of $20,000 (approximately $25 per member) to two worthy sources: the AIGA Katrina Emergency Fund and its work with Displaced Designer, an online initiative to help designers displaced by Hurricane Katrina get back on their feet; and to the Department of Art at Mississippi State University, where many students have suffered extensive losses, including those transferring from schools on the Gulf Coast that are closed or no longer exist. This donation will help graphic design students whose families have been affected buy books and supplies this semester and continue their education.

As a community, we have tremendous power to help our fellow designers in this crisis. We encourage each of you to visit the Displaced Designer site: http://www.displaceddesigner.com. Please make your own contributions of funds, space, jobs – whatever you can do to help – through one of the many links on this site. If you wish to help design students affected by the hurricane, contributions can be mailed to: (Please make checks payable to the MSU Foundation and note Fine Arts Advancement Fund/SPD on the memo line.)

Kay DeMarsche
Head, Department of Art
College of Architecture, Art + Design
PO Box 5182, Mississippi State, MS 39762

Sincerely,
Fred Woodward, President, Society of Publication Designers

What can we do?

Tuesday, September 13th, 2005 at 10:00 pm

With every tragedy – independent of its magnitude – those not directly affected desperately seek ways to help: Some give money, others provide hands-on help, others pray… Yet there is always the feeling that more could be done, that, perhaps, if we had asked in which way our efforts would best be utilized we could have helped in a bigger way. With this forum we hope to offer a space where creatives struck by hurricane Katrina can provide a glimpse into their needs at this turning point in their lives. Besides the running list of petitions for help on this site, it would be valuable to hear what can designers do to help, what can we do in the next five hours, the next five days, the next five months? What can we do for the next five years, as a collective profession, to help restore the creative industry and its practitioners on the aftermath of this tragic ocurrence?
