Our friends at Valiant asked us to get involved in an international competition to design a logo and a collection bin for e-waste recycling. We designed the basic branding of Design The 4th Bin together with Mina Hatano and developed the website based on Wordpress.

Because we didn’t really want to create too much of a blog look and feel, we chose a Wordpress template that allowed for many static elements and tweaked it quite a bit. I wrote my first little Wordpress plug-in (customization of admin panel/ dashboard), we integrated PayPal payment for the sign-up fee and added some fields to the Wordpress user database which we use to manage contributers.

We hope we we’ll be able to contribute our share in addressing this huge ecological disaster which so far has not received the attention it deserves.


UPDATE: Registration Deadline for the competition is June 19, 2009. For the project Valiant also teamed up with Per Scholas, The Architect’s Newspaper, Metropolis Magazine, Soho Reprographics, and Core 77, the New York City Department of Design and Construction, Studio Scott Henderson + MINT, and Ishida Crandall.
