Social Impact Design Summit

What? Design is a process that can solve problems, and socially responsible design is design that seeks to solve problems which vex the world’s poor and marginalized communities. Simply put, socially responsible design uses innovation and the tools of design to improve access to services such as healthcare and education and increase social, economic, and environmental sustainability.

Scher Abundance

There is a show called MAPS at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery exhibiting an abundant selection of cartographic paintings by Paula Scher of Pentagram, including pieces painted between 1998 and 2010. You don’t realize how big these paintings are when you see them online or reproduced as prints—for example, the World Trade map from 2010 is 92” high by 157” wide.

Designing Media - Jessie Scanlon

I had often heard about Jessie Scanlon’s work and enjoyed her writings before meeting her in person, so I was thrilled when she suggested that we record an interview for a BusinessWeek podcast to talk about my recently published book Designing Interactions.
