Impact Design


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.
