We use design to 1) analyze social issues, 2) generate ideas and 3) refine our proposals.
Social impact issues involve complex relationships, unspoken obstacles, powerful forces and human incentives. We want to decipher these using visuals.
Existing information and initiatives establish critical context about culture, behavior, and the success/failure of models. We use a careful balance of both experimentation and criticism to set the tone for our investigation.
Self-sufficient community-driven strategies emerge when a foundation is laid for all efforts to thrive. We don't create additive solutions - we want to help acheive a level of genuine equity by reworking or newly designing underlying frameworks.
We're combining design and systems-thinking for positive community change.
Innovation and expertise must push and pull each other. We want to create dynamic teams for change. This can only happen if multiple sectors collaborate - an inherent part of systems-thinking.
You can collaborate with our collective in two ways:
Become an ally. Contribute your expertise to projects. Exercise your "big-picture" muscles by participating in brainstorming sessions. No-strings-attached.
Become an official partner by teaming up with us to collectively secure financing and execute portions of a project.
