The Perks of being a Fixpert

May 2013

Design as a tool for repair
This is the classic Mr. Fixit tale cranked up a few notches. In an earnest attempt to take action and solve the kinds of practical, everyday repair problems that arise with people everywhere, an initiative has been established that puts the designer in the role of repairman. Designers everywhere are called upon to engage, and video documentation of all such Fixpert projects are accumulated on one website for others to tap into. Win-Win!
