It’s hard to not be aware of the challenges our world faces—issues like climate change, safety, inequity and more dominate the global news cycle. But amid these challenges are tremendous opportunities to use design to contribute to a better world. At CannonDesign, we do this with an approach we created called Living-Centered Design. Inspired by the best attributes of human-centered and systems-based design methods, it addresses challenges through the lens of the broader ecosystems they exist within—helping organizations and communities realize more impactful, systemic change.
Living-Centered Design improves human life.
The Living-Centered Lenses
Living-Centered Design is fueled by a deep understanding of the core needs and connections that exist within human life:
|People||People deserve to live happy, safe and fulfilling lives.|
|Business||Businesses should be constantly empowered to achieve new levels of success.|
|Communities||Communities need to support and nurture their citizens.|
|Society||Societies must create equitable paths for social and economic prosperity.|
|Environment||Our environment needs to be protected.|
