Design Intervention


A great design intervention, which is attempting to add a new word to the English language, one used to describe an environmental destructor (SUV driver for instance). Similar in tone to the use of the word Racist, the word Depletist is designed to build understanding and appreciation of the current environmental issues. The designer created multiple ways of getting the word out to the public but the most interesting was this hand out. A five-dollar bill, with the word Depletist and its definition on it, which users get to spend and begin to disseminate this new language. The use of the bill solidifies the statement and is novel for creating an ongoing dialogue with users and how they spend their money, perhaps thinking of the environment during their shopping.
