Rethinking

Design

& Its

Purpose

We live on the precipice of a modern renaissance

Never before have we lived through such dynamic change facilitated by technology

At our core we are human

Our Neanderthal essence craves love, security, community and belonging

COoperATING FOR THE FUTURE OF DESIGN

Globally We Design (GloWD) is a global thought-leadership initiative. We generate new knowledge for its impact on design thinking, practice and processes to tackle evermore pressing and contemporary problems facing humanity at large. With a focus on human interaction, collaboration and communication, we improve connections and related processes.

 

Comprised of visionary design and expert leadership, GloWD facilitates leading-edge conversations. We build community networks and offer results across all design sectors and applications, to achieve outcomes that expand the reach, impact and viability of useful creativity into the future. Adopting universal values, GloWD exists to affect a positive global impact through and by design.
