Humanistic Co-Design Initiative

“Humanistic Co-Design is an extension of contemporary design approaches, such as design thinking and human-centered design, that emphasizes the emergent inspiration that comes from the dissolution of the designer-client relationship in favour of a mutual engagement of peers with complementary experiences and expertise.”

— Dr. Kyle Kean, Lecturer and Research Scientist @ Massachusetts Institute of Technology
