The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.
Please enter your first and last names in the area provided above. This information will not be shared and is not required, it will only be used in the event that we must contact you. The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.

Please choose the Design District which you would like to join. Please read the following guidelines when choosing a district.

CONSTITUENT (general public, design enthusiasts, other).

If you feel like there is not an appropriate district, please join as a CONSTITUENT.

Please enter your professional off-line affiliation. For Students this would be your current school, college, or university. For all other citizens please enter your company, firm, or other name you wish to be affiliated with. You are not required to enter this information, however, by entering it you will allow people another search option to discover your designs.

This field will automatically fill in an affiliation, if there is another student or colleague with the same affiliation.  This helps cut down on duplicate affiliations and allows visitors to search by school or company. 

We don't want or need your physical address and this is not required to join Design Democracy '08. We do have some cool mapping features installed and once there is enough information we'd like to be able to show all of our citizens where in the world all these great designs are coming from. The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.
Because you are agreeing to the terms of service we'd like a way to contact you other than email to discuss your designs should your design be chosen for manufacturing. Again it's not required, but it will make it easier for all of us, you included, if you would like to see your design come to life. This information will never be sold, given away, or shared with another party. The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.
