A New Quarterly Celebrates Ingenuity In Unlikely Places
A new quarterly magazine unites DIY cultures around the world.
Makeshift, a new quarterly magazine dedicated to the discovery and dispersion of functional, constraint-based design, just released its inaugural issue at the Better World by Design conference in Providence, RI.
The magazine, whose KickStarter page has already more than doubled its $15k goal, celebrates DIYers, designers, and makers the world ’round, who use their ingenuity and love of craft to overcome everyday problems, particularly in environments where resources are scarce. The freshman issue focuses on reusing, repairing, and recycling at the grassroots level and covers everything from artistic Nairobian eyewear to Chinese found-material robots.
