Designing in times of recession

Recession Design is a project launched by five Milan based creatives - including designers, a graphic designer and a photographer, which also rallies the involvement of many such others. Interested in aesthetics as well, their drive is to go back to simple materials and essential forms, and to share drawings via the Internet and through flyers. Possessing a fundamental social aspect, they see their movement as a cultural revolution.
