We believe the best way to create meaningful solutions for people is to design with them. Our 7 principles guide us in this process.
Give the community a voice for action
Embrace the ambiguity of the process
We embrace the ambiguity of the process. The process of design is sometimes ambiguous and mostly non-linear. We go back and forth, two steps forward, one step back… because we accept we don’t always have clarity on the specifics for how something will unfold. But we define the why, collectively imagine the outcome, embrace the ambiguity and support each other through the process.
Diversify the mediums for people to contribute
We diversify the mediums that support people in contributing. In this community journey of creation we need to progressively provide different ways for people to contribute in ways that match their context and skillset. Be that sketching a wireframe in a collaborative workshop, presenting imagery or writing a haiku and sharing this in whatever way suits them.
Think big and build tiny
Playing together is greater than showing and telling
Playing and learning together is greater than just showing and telling. We strive to support participating in ways that enable more tactile and hands-on approaches to community contributions. We work to make it as experiential and playful as possible and learn by doing, together.
