This week featured the final prize for the Go London Social Innovation winner, Go 10,000. On a chilly Thursday morning we headed to Precedent, where the designers and Danielle Ramsey (the innovator behind Go 10,000) started to put together a project blog for Go 10,000 to call home. Danielle gave us a quick update on how things were going:
“The Go 10,000 journey has been a busy one, Precedent creating a project blog is a huge step forward - it’s going to be really exciting to pull in all my previous learning, the brilliant prize sessions and now as we prepare to pilot, our future approaches.
It’s also going to be a great place to collect all the conversations going on related to Go 10,000 – there’s plenty of stuff to keep on top of! The upcoming Olympics, initiatives such as the Boris Bikes and 2011 being named the year of walking to name but a few… it’s a really exciting time to be involved in a project that aims to get people moving.
It’s been great watching my vision spring to life, and I’m determined to keep that momentum as we look towards the pilot stages with NHS London.”
The project also announced the brand new Go 10,000 logo, designed by M&C Saatchi as part of the winners prize pack earlier on in the month. After careful consideration and taking a look through all your suggestions (thank you all for those!) the team decided to go for clear favourite Logo F:
Armed with both a new logo and a blog in the making, we spent a some time setting up the project around the web so that Go 10,000 is ready to go, getting the word out as the project moves forward and prepares for pilot.
The new Go 10,000 blog will be ready in the next week or so – keep an eye out here for news of it’s launch. The Go 10,000 pilot is looking to run in the next few months… we’ll keep you posted!
Many thanks to Precedent for generously donating their designer’s time to help our winning idea – we can’t wait to see the end result.
