RGD Webinar: Purpose Design

Presented by Paddy Harrington RGD, Founder of Frontier

Change happens when people have more inspiring ways to change. Rather than telling people they have to be more socially or environmentally conscious, we have to design more inspiring experiences built on strong social and environmental principles. Design plays an important role in this process. 


As designers, we are trained to think about human experience and synthesize complex variables seamlessly. And it all starts with understanding your purpose. How can designers help organizations understand their fundamental human purpose in a way that enhances their business goals? And then how can we help them tell their stories in powerful and inspiring ways? This talk explores these ideas and provides insight into how designers can help change things for the better.
