Handmade Nation10 February 2009
Good design is slick, clean, and about large budgets (and egos), right? Not always.
There is an entire movement that has swept the world. It is all about a more organic community oriented approach towards design that many believe in so wholeheartedly they have titled it The DIY (do it yourself) Community.
Director Faythe Levine has edited footage she collected from 15 cities, and over 80 DIY community pioneers around the United States, into ‘Handmade Nation‘, a 65 minute film that documents this cultural tendency.
(The book, written in collaboration with Cortney Heimerl, can be purchased at Amazon here).
