Design For Occupy. Occupy Design

This weekend I took part in the Occupy Design workshop (occupydesign.org.uk). I'm going to keep it brief. It may seem that the design industry is very much centered around consumption; which at times appears to exploit the basic human instinct of 'wanting more' through adverts, brands etc. However with movements such as Occupy there's suddenly a chance for designers, students and everyone (the 99%) to speak out against this. If there's one thing I've taken away from this weekend it's that: it's not just about designing for Occupy. It's also about Occupying design.
