The Seattle Design Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization established to create a platform for local creatives, in both social and financial capacities. Each year we give out theme-based grants, align mentorships and host connective events.
The design field, in our mind, encompasses a wide spectrum of disciplines including, but not limited to, architecture, landscape architecture, film, illustration, photography, interior, industrial, interaction, fashion, experience and graphic design.
SUPPORT SEATTLE DESIGN FOUNDATION
We believe that design has the potential to shape everything around us. Combining project focused grants for emerging designers and mentorship from experienced designers, we are supporting a future of design driven solutions for the betterment of everyone. Building upon a long history of innovation and industry, we are helping to secure Seattle as a hub for design talent and inspiration.
2016 GRANT THEME: FARM TO TABLE TO CRADLE
Over the last few years, the Farm-to-Table philosophy of serving and eating locally grown, locally prepared food has blossomed into something of a national movement, inspiring chefs, a new generation of young farmers, and even urban food forests. But what about the “dirty” side of food cycles: logistics, packaging, transport, disposal, and sustainably dealing with waste? How might we imagine new ways of growing, eating, and disposing of food?
