“L A M P was created to offer designers an opportunity to engage their talents in unique conceptual explorations and to connect the local community to architecture and design.”

L A M P or ‘Lighting Architecture Movement Project’ is an international design competition that challenges designers to approach design with the guidance of a singular word; this year’s word is Fibre. The second annual L A M P event will take place this coming November, however the call for entries has already begun. So if you think you have a bright idea be sure to check out the competition details here.


Local ♥: Small Wonder Magazine Indiegogo Campaign

26 Jun


Small Wonder is a quarterly magazine for kids and their grown-ups.

As those of you who follow We Are Local on instagramtwitter and facebook may already know, one half of the We Are Local team has started work on a new project. That one half is me, Daniela Lee. I have been busy putting together a fresh and indie take on a kids magazine; something that is fun for both kids and grown-ups.

To help get this project off the ground I have started an Indiegogo campaign to aid in covering some of the production costs – namely the printing. I would be tickled pink if you would have a look at the campaign to learn more about the magazine and to share it with anyone you think might be interested.

Small Wonder encourages wondering. Be curious, ask questions.
Small Wonder wishes to instill a sense of wonder. Be amazed, be inspired.
