The Young Designers Collective

5/17/2013




The Young Designers Collective is an association of artists and designers based in New York City, who design for non-profit organizations to promote good will as well as gain exposure individually and for the cause we are working towards. Sponsored by SI Design and Consulting Inc, they provide young designers a platform that would have otherwise been difficult to build and gain recognition with on their own. In an ever-shrinking world, working together to achieve success has never been more important.

They allow for a free exchange of ideas and talents, thereby fostering the growth of artists and art in commercial design. They want to bring appreciation back to the artist behind the designer, to quality or handmade products, and to a more sustainable future. From design to production they believe in fair trade and source our materials with this in mind.

By “doing well by doing good” they connect their designers to non-profit organizations in order to create a favorable outcome for both parties. Both benefit from the high quality products designed to produce revenue for the organization and promote the designer’s name into a new or national market. With philanthropy and fashion hand in hand, they hope to further charitable works as well as bring new talent to light sooner than ever before.

With their recent donation to the Heart and Soul Charitable Fund, which was presented at their annual gala auction at Christie's Auction House and auctioned at Charity Buzz, they demonstrate our commitment to philanthropy and the part that art and design can play in facilitating a cause.

Their next project is a line of teen active wear and accessories for the Navigators USA, a national youth service organization started in Harlem in response to the discriminatory practices of the Boy Scouts of America. Now 45 chapters strong, the Navigators USA continues to grow rapidly across the country.They plan to launch the line this fall for release in Spring 2014.

Doesn't this sound amazing?! I really like this idea, and we definitely need something like this in Croatia as well. It's always great to support new, talented artists, especially when they have such kind hearts and want to help others. I look forward to seeing what they have planned next!
