When Doug Hebert attended a concert by Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder in 2012, he expected to see his favorite singer put on another fantastic show. What he got was so much more. Doug walked away inspired to make a difference in the lives of people he has never even met.
During the show, Eddie Vedder took time to speak to the crowd about his support for a little-known, yet devastating rare skin disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). He talked about how he and his wife Jill are committed to finding a cure for EB after their dear friends had a son born with the condition. Vedder’s comments moved Doug, a diehard Pearl Jam fan and 15-year fan club member, to use his professional platform to create change through design.

As the old adage says, you don’t know what you don’t know. But the truth is that sometimes you don’t know what you do know – at least until someone asks you a question about it. That’s never been clearer to me than when I began mentoring a fellow designer.
