Anthropology is the study of humans past and present. Design is the skill of solving complex problems to create a better future. But can a discipline focused on the past/present merge with a discipline focused on the future? The answer is yes. Welcome to Design Anthropology 101.

Most importantly, you’ll walk away with a basic understanding of how to use ethnographic methodologies and collaboration to make products that push humanity forward.
