Ion Branding + Design Launches Fourth Annual One Good Idea(TM) $25,000
Sustainable Ideas Contest

VANCOUVER, March 9 /CNW/ - Ion Branding + Design, a Vancouver-based multidisciplinary design firm, today announced the launch of their fourth annual One Good Idea(TM) sustainability contest. Ion is looking for a project that positively contributes to the well-being of our world. An organization's project could be environmentally, socially or economically focused and it can be a new or existing one. The submission with the most merit will receive $25,000 worth of strategic and creative services.

Past One Good Idea(TM) winners include The Care Tools - a web based tool-set designed to help families facing long-term care challenges; Shameless Hussy Productions - a theatre company dedicated to bringing women's issues to the forefront; and Sustainable Solutions Group - a results-based consulting network facilitating organizations towards socially responsible business practices.

At its core, sustainability is an expression of the desire to find balance and harmony among the competing social, economic and environmental drivers of culture. It's about trying to fashion a better society. While most would agree that we all want to make a difference, we would probably also agree that we feel overwhelmed about how to make it real. Our One Good Idea(TM) contest endeavors to remind people that even small steps can contribute to massive change. One Good Idea(TM) is all it takes.

"We have done a lot of pro bono work over the years, but until we created this contest, it never really had a focus," says Ion Branding + Design co-founder David Coates. "We believe that this contest is an excellent opportunity to provide this focus and to promote sustainability by helping to develop a tangible product or service that will benefit humankind today."

"Sustainability is in the news a lot lately, and though it affects us all it's difficult to understand what sustainability really means," says Ion co-founder Rod Roodenburg. "We want to give back a little to the community and support the development of a good idea so it can become marketable."

The contest is open to any Canadian company or organisation that meets contest criteria. The submission deadline is June 4th, 2010. Visit for submission info.
