Welcome to lenspeace, a spectrum of creative ideas!

Lenspeace is a social impact design & letterpress printmaking studio. We love the intersection of tradition & innovation, and believe in making the world a better place through shared power, finding creative solutions to complicated human problems, while sharing that story throughout all forms of media and community engagement.

Our work is intimate. We need to get to know everything about you in order to facilitate your design needs, so please make yourself comfortable while you get to know us and what we value.

What is Social Impact Design?

A process of exploring connections and uncovering pain points to foster alignment and resiliency from discord. A methodology empathetic to the needs of the community you intend to benefit. It aims to build inclusivity, set a measurable course of action, and considers the unintended consequences of every decision throughout the creative process. Whether you're an indie creative working with a small group or aligning an entire community with a range of stakeholders, the impact process helps you achieve your goals, design a better world, and tell more impactful stories while creating meaningful work.

What Can It Do?

The process can facilitate a creative solution to any human problem, including solutions for some our most pressing social issues, such as...

Domestic violence
Food desert and access to quality nutrition
Prison reform
Public health
Race and gender equality
Diversity, inclusion, and accessibility
Recycling and conservation
School-to-prison pipeline
Support for artists
Veterans issues
Voter registration and participation
Water access and safety
Any reality that is unmet or needs clarity, advocacy, and/or a voice

We Believe

Good design respects the following four pillars of humanity, and our goal is to create beauty in the world while integrating them into every phase of development.

Protect and restore the natural habitat we share with all life.

Create equitable opportunities for all humans regardless of age, race, sex, orientation, or status.

Respect and celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of shared narratives.

Create resilience and growth in the local, regional, national, and global trade systems.

Our Process

We dive deep because we need to know every facet of what you do and where you're at in the process so that we can help you succeed. We strive to create a safe space for vulnerability and honesty, to help foster solutions that better your life and the greater good.

Issue a problem statement and do discovery around all existing relationships and valid perspectives surrounding this problem.

Uncover which areas of impact we want to have and what outputs and metrics are required to build a better system respectful of environment, economy, culture, and society.

Find the most sustainable areas of output for the project to have the most direct influence over creating positive change within existing systems.

Track progress on short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals, to ensure the project is fulfilling its intended goals and then pivot when necessary for assured success.

Document the work and share the story to inspire others working towards the same problem or seeking inspiration to influence the world around them for the greater good.
