Wanted Anywhere

How might we develop a more accessible resource for a wider scope of the design community? 

Wanted Anywhere is a multi-faceted digital extension of Wanted Design*Industry City’s Design Center, proliferating an all-encompassing accessibility of resources that caters towards a wider scope of emerging designers and brands alike. This element of connectivity eases the conceptual time and space while fostering community and collaboration throughout the discovery and design processes.​

Challenge

As a team, our biggest challenge was working together under the circumstances of a global pandemic and adjusting to a quick embrace of remote technology while not having access to the physical resources we have grown accustomed to. Adapting to these changes allowed for us to see the true value in digital connectivity and subsequently inspired us to integrate those insights into our ideation.

Outcome

A stronger digital channel that functionally integrates into the physical space allows the architecture and interior design community to stay connected- to each other and to the Design Center, wherever, whenever.

Parsons School of Design has offered students innovative approaches to education since its founding in 1896.  Today we’re the only American art and design school within a comprehensive university, The New School, which also houses a rigorous liberal arts college and a progressive performing arts school. Our undergraduate and graduate programs, offered through Parsons’ five schools, immerse students in focused training, interdisciplinary inquiry, and practice-based collaborative learning. Here creators and scholars master established art and design fields and advance emerging ones while studying a range of university disciplines.
