Building a body of aggregated knowledge is a central goal for Designmatters. Achieving that goal is about creating a confluence of elements to encompass:  storytelling, writing, recording and publishing.

KNOWLEDGE COLLECTIVE

At every point of contact, touching upon all areas of engagement, Designmatters undertakes to archive everything done through the program.  Today what emerges through this website is the story, process, and outcome of every class and every project.

With a wide range of original material being published, and more academic papers being presented at conferences around the world on the diverse topics of: education, design, global healthcare and social innovation, Designmatters moves forward in gathering a body of collective information and published case studies.
