Early in my career I asked – “Can our physical environment influence our health, wellbeing, creativity and innovation?” Believing it to be so, I set out to seek evidence and define these features.
I found that Human-centric design became my personal philosophy. I define “Human Centric” design as a creative approach to design problem-solving with the focus on human needs. It is the backbone of my research, writing, advocacy, leadership and design work. It’s a process that starts with people’s needs and complexities and ends with new creative solutions that solve intricate issues of the human condition.
