Reflections

AI – is it the future of design?

With Artificial Intelligence (AI), technological development has taken a quantum leap. Where does that leave design as a profession, and where does the individual designer fit into this technological evolution?

Designing for the New World

If design is part of the problem, how can design be part of the answer? In her new book Design for the New World. From Human Design to Planet Design, professor Ida Engholm explores the inherent values in our design methodologies and ideas for reclaiming design as a force for good – not only for humanity but the entire planet. Design denmark sat down with her to discuss the future of design.

What might it mean for us to move past human-centered design?

Design has thrived as a human-centered practice, but how can we move beyond the privileging of humans to explore design as a practice of cohabitation and mutualism?

What we offer

We believe in impact tomorrow inspiration together craft thinking

What the world needs now more than our Danish modesty is our craft, our humanity, and our optimism. 

In a world of uncertainty design must inspire possibility by continuously advancing beyond our craft to create positive impact and add new value, as a mindset of how we as humans engage the world. It points to a better tomorrow shaped by our actions today. 

A future not only imagined, but what we make of it.

Design is possibility in the making.
