16 posters for “Se dici Bio”
30 October 2023
“Se dici Bio” is a project by Alce Nero that aims to portray the world of organic products with a fresh and innovative approach. This project was realized through the collaboration of members, processors, agronomists, and colleagues at Alce Nero. It documented the harvesting and production activities from 2021 to 2023. We designed and printed 16 posters, which were presented alongside the 16 monographs produced by the company, each one was dedicated to a product or to the philosophy of Alce Nero. These posters were used during the presentation of the project and were also wall displayed as decorative elements. We also hand-decorated a tablecloth for the even, a special way to communicate the principles and values of the Alce Nero company.

We designed and facilitated a three-day workshop for MSF in Amsterdam, welcoming its financial directors from all over the world.

The workshop helped the participants to clarify priorities, highlighting the needs and changes to be made in order to make this unique and generous humanitarian organization even more sustainable and efficient.
Scribing for the Fondazione Yunus
4 August 2023
Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner, is the creator and implementer of “microcredit”, a loan system for entrepreneurs who are too poor to obtain credit from traditional banking circuits. In June 2023, the Yunus Foundation organized the first “Italian Social Business Day” in Bologna to introduce the spirit of initiative “for a World with Three Zeros: Zero Poverty, Zero Unemployment, Zero Pollution”. The themes of the day were dedicated to the social and environmental challenges intertwined with business activities in our country and in the city of Bologna. Housatonic has participated facilitating the understanding of the themes and gathering ideas through a series of visualizations created in real time.
SUM – Seniors united against misinformation
14 July 2023
Our society is facing an unprecedented challenge: the enormous amount of data available at our fingertips, combined with the massive dose of fake news and disinformation, have generated a crisis of trust in information. SUM consists of an inclusive co-design process, which involves working with stakeholders, adults and elderly people, to welcome their needs and concerns. Housatonic is actively contributing to the design process of the activities and training, while also taking care of the graphic identity (logo, icons and the website).

PHD – SDC Sustainable Development and Climate Change
25 May 2023
We participated to the PHD-SDC event, an opportunity created by the IUSS of Pavia to allow students of the various PhD classes to interact, get to know each other and discuss their research projects; three days full of conferences and group work on the issues promoted by the SDGs. We helped students digitally visualize their theories as they worked in parallel, and collected the key themes of the days in a large Knowledge Wall set up in the plenary hall. It was nice to understand together how important it is to have a visual representation of scientific theories that usually are almost inaccessible for non-experts.
