We’ve told you about FIDM Alumnus Peter Deltondo’s do-good organization Design vs. Cancer before, and this month, he is joining forces with Cleveland creative agency Go Media to raise funds for families of individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer, and funds for cancer research.
For the month of November, 100 percent of the $15 monthly fee for Go Media’s subscription-based graphic design resource platform called the Arsenal will be going directly to Design vs. Cancer. Upon subscribing, Arsenal members will gain immediate access to a full product library of content created for specifically for graphic designers (mockup templates, textures, vectors, tutorials and more), as well as its thriving online community (including interviews, articles, podcasts and videos).
Subscribers will also receive an extra bonus: very special swag, which includes a Design vs Cancer sticker and wristband, an Arsenal hat and a poster and other surprise goodies (while supplies last).
“There truly is strength in numbers and we want to let cancer patients know that they have a giant team of supporters behind them through the fight. It’s been absolutely amazing to see the feedback we’ve been getting from the design community rallying around us, and it makes us darn proud to be a part of this industry,” says Deltondo.
Arsenal subscribers gain 24/7 access to the site’s ever-growing product library ($10,500 value and counting), including exclusive product releases available to subscribers only and insider access to the exclusive community and subscribers have the option to cancel services at any time.
“An unwritten step in all the process is the massive amount of hope subscribers will give to the families battling this disease,” says Go Media.
