What is Human Centered Design ?  Human-centered design is about believing you can make a DIFFERENCE, and having an intentional PROCESS in order to get to new, relevant SOLUTIONS that create POSITIVE IMPACT. How might we design a cook stove that reduces the amount of smoke inhaled by the user? How might we design a toilet for families living in areas with no sanitation infrastructure? How might we redesign the school lunch program for an entire city while providing for differences in individual schools?

Human-centered design is a mindset !!  HCD gives you faith in your creative abilities and a process for transforming difficult challenges into opportunities for design.  It’s Human-Centered   It’s Collaborative   Several great minds It’s Optimistic   Empathy and Understanding of needs We can all create change—no matter how big a problem It’s Experimental  Fail and to learn from your mistakes

HCD - an approach any challenge !!
