To raise awareness of the daily challenges faced by 1.3 billion people without electricity, ‘Cut out the Darkness’ asks participants to design a lantern shade. 100 of these designs will be chosen, fabricated and delivered to non-electrified areas worldwide, as an alternative to CO2 kerosene lamps. Other socially-conscious case studies are featured on the Design for Good platform on the AIGA website, which is celebrating its 100 year anniversary this year.
