[ THEORY BLOG : Design x Theory Media ] |


Design can be used as a valuable resource & tool to influence and inform change in our community. Design By Theory Media started the DESIGN plus COMMUNITY Initiative to connect business objectives with philanthropy. Our passion for design & philanthropy demonstrates our commitment to giving back to the community and our dedication to make a difference. We’ve partnered with several non-profit organizations like Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation, Coin Maze Campaign and MS Run the US, Inc. to start raising awareness across the Nation.


MS Run the US, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) government approved charitable organization that was set up to raise donations to help those living with MS and gather sponsorships to fund my run across America. The main goal of MS Run the US Inc. is to raise awareness about MS and inspire individuals across the nation to donate towards the cure of this disabling disease. Ashley Kumlien set out to do all this through her 3,200 mile run across America. MS Run the US is a run from San Francisco to New York to stop MS, because MS stops people from moving.

A word from the Founder of MS Run the Us, Inc:

“In our world where everyone has a website & we have just seconds to make the right first impression, how does one begin to represent themselves online? My answer is with Design By Theory Media. Jason & his staff have spent countless hours taking a vision in my head and bringing it to life. He has far exceeded any expectations that I had & has been completely accessible in order t

o create the perfect company brand for us. I’m proud to show off his work to our prospective clients and strongly recommend Design By Theory Media to anyone who wants that extra edge!”

Coin Maze Campaign allows individuals to enjoy the aesthetic and interactive benefits of this public art piece while giving back small donations or coins to a charitable cause of any kind, in any community. The functional five-foot sculpture is a donation receptacle and can be placed inside or outside a building with high traffic. It will stand out, attracting attention and creating community awareness.

The campaign or iconic feature can be integrated into shopping centers, hospitals, art centers, or community parks and will provide an opportunity for dynamic relationships and joint efforts to prosper. This campaign proves spare change is change we need; it’s people helping people and can start making a difference in your community today.

Coin Maze Campaign was initiated by Jason M. Brown based off the idea: “Design + Community = Change.” The Arizona State University – School of Design Innovation graduate and business owner felt modern art and design can do more than just look good. It can raise awareness and give back to any community as well.
