Impact Design: [Infographic] Global Public Interest Design 100

1,498 views

Published on

Around the world, a growing movement at the intersection of design and social change is taking hold. As is the case in the Autodesk Gallery exhibition on public interest design, we see life-saving products, dignifying environments and places, and more efficient processes, services, and systems--all designed or redesigned for the betterment of all.

Building on the inaugural "Public Interest Design 100, (link to http://people.publicinterestdesign.org)," published in December 2012, the following first-of-its-kind Global Public Interest Design 100 takes an even broader view of the diverse individuals shaping a field and the world. Many are architects and designers, but they are also crucial communicators, connectors, educators, and funders with no design training whatsoever. Instead, they are crucial advocates.

This global list was compiled by Autodesk's own John Cary in his capacity as founding editor of PublicInterestDesign.org (link tohttp://www.publicinterestdesign.org), a website about the growing public interest design field. The selections were based on nominations solicited from a range of leaders across the design fields. The research and work was made possible by the generous sponsorship of Autodesk (link to http://www.autodesk.com).

Lists of this sort, of course, are inherently imperfect and subjective as well as far more representative than comprehensive. But they are also useful in shining a light on unseen leaders and unheard voices. Between this list of 146 and the inaugural list of 150, nearly 300 people have been recognized--and we are certain there are many more working hard each day to make the world a better place, by design
