Design As a Development Tool

Design As a Development Tool

"Design can be used as an active tool to fight poverty and generate income and resilience in countries of the Global South through new types of creative economies." - Gerardo Patacconi Designers have a social responsibility. For too long, design was something like fashion: only for the happy few and very superficial. Designers were a kind of stylist.
