Begin anywhere, anytime, anyhow.
Build in public.
Build back better, and reinvigorate democratic design.
Think at a higher frequency.
Think about problems as opportunities.
Think diverse input, rich output.
Think about the short-term results and the long-term impact.
Design for your context, Africa.
Design for now, next and after we're gone.
Design new behaviours, instead of new products.
Design for long-life, loose-fit and low-energy.
Design for meaningful change.
Design for delight.
Create stability, as a foundation for innovation.
Create space for other people’s ideas.
Create spaces that reflect our society.
Create transdisciplinary teams that reflect the people they serve.
Let’s be led by new voices
Let’s let events change us
Let’s let spaces flex with the ever-changing needs and wants of life
Make change intelligible and purposeful
[never random or scary]
Make accountability real
[it’s more than just lip service]
Sustain and propel those around you
Use design to start tough conversations
Support the communities in which we live and work
Radically reduce material and energy use
Rise to the occasions, and the challenges
Be radically empathetic
If not us, then who? If not now, then when?
It’s our time to reimagine.
