This blog is to showcase how the process of design can be used as a tool to design products that help not hurt people. I will showcase examples of how to augment the typical design process by incorporating integrated bottom line thinking (people, planet, and profit), designing for the whole life-cycle of the product, or other ways of thinking more holistically about the product that is being designed. With the introduction of the Designers Accord in 2007 and its thousands of adopters, the tipping point for sustainable design thinking has been found. This blog will give designers the tools to make this way of thinking just another step in the design process.
