THE DONUT

The “DoNut’s” design came from the desire to create a singular, didactic form that would capture the spirit of the competition prompt while adding the idea of collective idea sharing. Mobility was the driving design parameter behind the form, which is easily identifiable to non designers. Everyone knows what a wheel looks like and that it rolls. The circular form when horizontal invites an equitable discourse and provides the stage for a reinterpretation of soapbox expression.
