Opening Saturday: Marketing has run amok when even presidential candidates are described as "brands" (Jeb! Hillary! Trump!). Still, even in these mendacious days, designers with gravitas are working to promote smart design, social responsibility and the common good. Twenty-one of them have converged to "make a statement, take a stand, provoke, honor, deliver and even make some design mischief." As a backlash against corporate hegemony, they may commit "brandalism." This will happen in media including posters, books, digital whatnots, magazine illustrations and 3-D statements. You've been warned. (Opening 7-9 p.m. Sat. Noon-6 p.m. Thu.-Sat. Free. Ends Sept. 5. Form + Content Gallery, 210 N. 2nd St., Mpls. 612-436-1151,
