Date: Monday, September 23rd at 730pm (we are starting at 8pm on the dot)

Curious about the world of ‘human centred design’ and how it can be used to solve social problems and/or generate some wicked cool stuff..?

So, what is human-centred design?

Human-Centered Design (hCD) is a process and a set of techniques used to create new solutions for the world. Solutions include products, services, environments, organizations, and even modes of interaction.

The reason this process is called “human-centered” is because it starts with the people we are designing for. The hCD process begins by examining the needs, dreams, and behaviors of the people we want to affect/support/improve with our solutions.
