During his 30+ year career, he has worked with some of the world’s brightest minds, most influential politicians, biggest companies, and most ambitious social movements – all of whom have been drawn to his view of design “with a capital D.” He is a creative optimist – one who uses design as a multi-disciplinary framework to solve big, global problems. 24 principles for designing massive change How can we as designers create our own positive changes, big and small?
