Healing Design

Human-Centric Solutions

| About Me

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.

Barbara Heulat of Healing Design focuses on human centric design as a creative approach to design problem-solving with a focus on human needs.
