Vancouver – Ion Branding + Design , a Vancouver-based multidisciplinary graphic design studio, today announced the launch of their third annual One Good Idea™ contest . Doing good for the world is any organization’s badge of honour. Through their third annual One Good Idea™ contest, Ion Branding + Design is looking for a project that positively contributes to the well-being of our world. An organization’s project could be environmentally, socially or economically focused. The submission with the most merit will receive $25,000 worth of Ion’s creative services.
At its core, sustainability is an expression of the desire to find balance and harmony among the competing social, economic and environmental drivers of culture. It’s about trying to fashion a better society. While most would agree that we all want to make a difference, we would probably also agree that we feel overwhelmed about how to make it real. Our One Good Idea™ contest endeavors to remind people that even small steps can contribute to massive change. One Good Idea™ is all it takes.
“We have done a lot of pro bono work over the years, but until we created this contest, it never really had a focus,” says Ion Branding + Design co-founder David Coates. “We believe that this contest is an excellent opportunity to provide this focus and to promote sustainability by helping to develop a tangible product or service that will benefit humankind today.”
“Sustainability is in the news a lot lately, and though it affects us all it’s difficult to understand what sustainability really means,” says Ion co-founder Rod Roodenburg. “We want to give back a little to the community and support the development of a good idea so it can become marketable.”
The contest is open to any Canadian company or organization that meets contest criteria. The submission deadline is July 3rd, 2009. Visit http://www.onegoodidea.ca  for submission info.
