AIGA Chicago’s Design for Social Impact Workshop on January 26 is a one day, all day event that will focus on learning design thinking methods to help create stronger, user-centered products and services in the social sector.
This will be a fun day of hands-on activities—attendees will learn and practice the core methods of the human-centered design process. During the course of the day, we will apply a human-centered design methodology to a challenge Casa Central, a social service agency based in Chicago that has been serving the needs of the Hispanic community since 1954, needs help solving (the specific challenge will be detailed soon).
Specifically, we will cover:
• Building empathy for your user
• Making sense of user-research
• Generating ideas and prototyping solutions
• Pitching your ideas
This is not a workshop just for designers (though we welcome them). We encourage participants who work in not-for-profit, social services, or anyone interested in learning about tools to help make a difference to attend the workshops. There is no prior experience necessary.
You will leave this session equipped to apply human-centered design methods to challenges across industries and sectors.
