     Camacho is credited worldwide as the man behind the inspired designs of the Mercedes Benz E Class series. He is currently based in the company’s Beijing headquarters where he works as the lead in the automobile company's illustrious design team.

     The homegrown talent will talk about his ride to the top, from his beginnings at the Industrial Design department of the University of Santo Tomas, and his entry to furniture and toy design before establishing a career in the lavish automobile industry.

     Ayala Museum initiated these lectures to educate and inspire Filipinos who aspire to be part of the creative industry. The series also helps promote and situate the local design panorama.

     Admission to the lecture is Php150 for students, senior citizens and Ayala Museum members and Php300 for adults, inclusive of admission to the galleries.

Visualization, Information, Collaboration.

     Knowledge is power and that power comes from the right to vote. Public awareness is displayed through TeamManila's collaboration with COMELEC and LRT/MRT to educate voters and would-be voters. A perfect example of how design can be a powerful medium to spread important information through easy readability- not to mention a strong visual presence.

     More of these creative projects will be possible if you take the time out to join #designparasalahat on Facebook and Twitter, a campaign on the establishment of a design council here in the Philippines.

     "Design Para Sa Lahat is an initiative that believes that Philippine design and creativity should be taken to another level.

     We are pushing for the establishment of the Design Council of the Philippines. A Senate bill is going to be filed by Sen. TG Guingona on August 8, 2011, so let's make noise and show our support. Post about the #designparasalahat initiative on your blogs, Twitter, and Facebook. (source: Design Para Sa Lahat Facebook)"

Senator Guingona visits Team Manila

  One of the perks of being in TeamManila is the occasional public figure dropping by. Senator Guingona recently paid the TeamManila office a visit. It just so happened that the kind Senator is more than willing to help out the creative industry in any way he can. Team Manila as you all know is a strong advocate of nurturing and establishing a strong creative industry and we're glad to know that Senator Guingona is on the same page with us. Gives us hope that the creative industry will become bigger than it is today.

Team Manila supports Rizal X

     Dulaang UP, on its 36th Season, presents its opening production, RIZAL X. This original production will feature a collaboration of the young and promising theater actors of this generation, the live music of Happy Days Ahead and the works of both established and budding poets, playwrights, choreographers, animators, film makers and artists. Among the works included, Rizal X will feature the creations of Dong Abay, Gerson Abesamis, Manix Abrera, Chips Beltran, Layeta Bucoy, Winter David, Deo Dela Cruz, Jeffrey Garcia, Al Garcia, JM De Guzman, Vlad Gonzales, Adi Lopez, Joaquin Pedro Valdes, Floy Quintos and Rene Villanueva to name a few.

     Conceptualized, choreographed and directed by Dexter M. Santos (Orosman at Zafira) and with original music by William Manzano, Dulaang UP's RIZAL X is a new work that aims to (re)discover and (re)introduce the relevance of our hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal. Using mixed popular media of today's generation, this production aims to compile different points of view towards Rizal, his works and his life, in a collaboration of text, dance, music, animation and film culminating into a performance, which will refresh dreams and aspirations. A reminder for all of us of our childhood restlessness in dreaming and taking risks, an ax to our frozen desires and fantasies that has turned cold because of fears and hesitations caused by time and age. All of these threaded by Rizal's colorful historicity and poetry of courage and burning passion in writing, in fighting for education, in the arts and in love that remains a relevant memoir for every generation of Filipinos all over the world.

     The cast includes Maita Ponce, Jean Judith Javier, Reuben Uy, Red Concepcion, Reb Atadero, Yanah Laurel, Bea Garcia, Natasha Cabrera, Jules Dela Paz, Alchris Galura, Nicco Manalo and the Dulaang UP Ensemble.

    Comprising the artistic team are William Elvin Manzano for Music and Lyrics; Happy Days Ahead for Musical Arrangement; Katte Sabate and Chic San Agustin as Head Writers and Dramaturges; Leeroy New for Set Design; Voltaire De Jesus for Lights Design; Mitoy Sta. Ana for Costume Design; Ohm David as Technical Director; Irish Pangilinan as Musical Director; Jojit Lorenzo for Photography; Tuxqs Rutaquio for Poster Design.

     RIZAL X will run from July 20 to August 14, 2011 at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2nd floor Palma Hall, UP Diliman, Quezon City from Wednesdays to Fridays at 7PM and at 10AM and 3PM during weekends. For tickets, please contact Cherry at 09177500107, or the Dulaang UP Office at 926-1349, 981-8500 local 2449 or 433-7840.
