The Cause

3 years, 148 posts, 904 comments and over 2.5m visits later,
Design Assembly (as we know it) is no more.

But, instead of slipping quietly into the night, we wanted to capture
all the energy that’s gone into making and maintaining the site and put
it to a greater cause — fighting cancer.

‘3’ archives over 100 published articles, comments included,
as well as showcasing new and exclusive words and images from
some incredible people.

100% of the profits from the sale of this publication will be shared
proportionately between 3 charities with a combined global reach:

Cancer Research UK — United Kingdom
LIVESTRONG — North America
WCRF International — Rest of world

The total amount raised will be distributed proportionately
between these 3 charities according to the percentage of profits
generated by each catchment. For example, if 50% of profits are raised
by pledges from US billing addresses, 50% of profits will be donated
to LIVESTRONG, and so on.

According to Cancer Research UK, 1-in-3 of us will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in our lifetime. Can design make a difference?

Let’s find out.
