Social Design – the research-based, holistic, and trans-disciplinary approach to design

Ancora imparo.

Design influences the way societies function. 

As a social designer, I strive to be socially responsible by...

  • conducting in-depth research of relevant contexts, phenomena, and users
  • recognizing that not all problems are design problems
  • understanding the potential impact of my work
  • acknowledging that I am human, and therefore, falliable
  • working hard

When I'm not thinking about social design I like to dabble in other things, like illustration and motion graphics. Outside of the studio I enjoy road trips, globetrotting, and writing.

"The only important thing about design is how it relates to people. " 
– Victor Papanek in Design For The Real World: Human Ecology and Social Change
"A sustainable society is one that satisfies its needs without diminishing the prospects of future generations" 
– Lester Brown of the Worldwatch Institute
