As part of an ongoing interview series on the Autodesk Foundation's blog, ImpactDesignHub.org, Allan Chochinov, Editor at Large of Core77 and Chair of the MFA Products of Design program at SVA discusses Impact Design with Patrice Martin, Co-lead and Creative Director of IDEO.org. Martin is passionate about the power of design to change lives, and works to not only create solutions, but also to get more people solving problems like designers. Before founding IDEO.org, Patrice was a Design Director with IDEO.
In their talk, Martin discusses how design-led problem solving can be applied to our world's most critical problems. IDEO.org works across a breadth of sectors including reproductive health, financial opportunity and agriculture and recently published The Field Guide to Human-Centered Design, which has been downloaded over 35,000 times since April. As Martin shares in her interview, "Design can change the world because it gets us to new answers and we desperately need new answers..The status quo isn't going to get us there, but creativity and the right questions just might.
