Our friends down the street at California College for the Arts are learning about how design businesses work - by testing their proposals on Indiegogo.
Students taking the Business of Design course teamed up to launch Indiegogo campaigns of product ideas - with funds raised going to Architecture for Humanity. Each team set a goal of $500, soliciting $1 "votes" for the most attractive design business idea.
With 12 hours left in the campaigning, let's see how these design concepts are faring:
Thrive Plant Sensor - $1136
SmartMatch - $995
Vesta - $642
Perk - $607
Shift-dot-org - $583
SmackTalk - $39
Check out these innovative suggestions for improving our digital social and personal framework. And feel free to chime in - voting ends for these projects tonight at midnight.
