there are great places
to find good design.”
– Manila Design Week 2010 Motto
Once again, it’s that time of year when the sun shines a little brighter, when the breeze blows a little cooler, when the world revolves a little smoother. Yes, it’s Manila Design Week. If October is beer month, August is now officially design month.
You don’t have to be the artsy-fartsy type to appreciate design. Everywhere you look you can see designs. Whether good or bad, design is a part of our life which makes it usable and beautiful. Come and participate in the events this week to have a different gimik venue for a change or impress your date by pretending to be artistically inclined.

MUST WATCH – Manila Design Week on Youtube
This video just proves that design can be really weird sometimes. From iPod eating football players to Makati office girls licking subway floors, it just gets better towards the end. Awesome production nonetheless. This tickled my optic nerves when I watched it:
