design_destruct is a look at industrial design education, straight from the source; it tries to understand the relationship between conscious, radical intentions and the continued embrace of a status quo that upholds and deepens structures of destruction. it focuses in on corporate collaborations as a central culprit to this acceptance, and encourages design to be a tool to build for a structurally sustainable world, instead of the world as it is (and physically, socially, and environmentally can't continue to be). it is a call to action, to question, to reject and to refuse, and to protest. the knowledge gained—both through and despite the education—is turned against the structures we are taught to fit into, resulting in a collection of designs that use text, typography, space and form to educate and mobilise.
