The Heart Shaped Toolbox was one of the ideas generated by a talented team of designers at UX for Good 2013 in support of our partner, the Dalai Lama Center, and their educational and community mission to further develop empathy and mindfulness in children.

Honoring our commitment to identify ways to continue pushing the ideas forward, the Heart Shaped Toolbox was entered into the Webvisions Hackathon for Social Good in May 2013. As part of that event, members of the UX for Good team, the Dalai Lama Center and Portland native designers and developers banded together to create a functional prototype. The purpose was to further explore the idea of the toolbox and create product that the Center could continue to examine and begin including in their immediate short and long term plans.

  • Appendix: Brand Values
  • WEBVISIONS HACKATHON | MAY 19, 2013 BRAND VALUES Thinking about the brand Brand Values Scale means relinquishing control. Teach mindfulness by being mindful, not preaching mindfulness. Appeal to emotion to tell the story of the importance of emotional education. Both branding and mindfulness are exercises in subtraction, removing clutter to get to foundational truths. How? Use language and terms that appeal to broad or global audiences; avoid trigger words that can impact the implementation of the tools, programs and products. Implement using the tools and resources that you have. Don't try to create new policy frameworks. To achieve your goals, the messaging platform needs to take a neutral, secular focus. 22
