DESIGN IS A POWERFUL TOOL THAT INFLUENCES THE WORLD
This starter pack is made up of a handbook, playing cards, and a poster – all of which focus on what you CAN do (rather than what you SHOULD do) to embrace the Circular Economy. The handbook will prime you to adopt values, skills and a creative thinking toolset that focus on designing a world that works better for all of us.
Quick, beautifully illustrated, and designed by designers for designers, this starter pack will help get your brain into a circular systems thinking mindset.
The Activation pack includes:
Downloadable studio poster
Downloadable Conversation cards
The Circular Economy is an incredible movement towards a system of production and consumption that busts through the old linear economy by designing products, services and systems that make the world work better for all of us.
This starter activation book was created to calibrate your brain to the key thinking tools to get you started as a Circular Designer.
We made a beautiful print-and-put-up studio poster of all the key ideas of Circular Systems Design so you can activate your entire design team.
We all know great ideas come from good conversation. These cards are designed to spark curiosity and dialogue around how to circularize the design of any product, processes, system, or service. It’s best to read the Circular Systems Design Introduction Pack before using these cards, but it's not crucial.
Leyla Acaroglu and Mehrafza Mirzazad designed these cards to help creatives consider the impacts and consequences of their productions, to help develop new ways of creating outcomes that fit within the Circular Economy, and to provide more sustainable solutions to the world.
The objective of the Conversation Cards is to deepen the dialogue about the things we create, how they impact the world, and the ways we can contribute more beautiful and effective PRODUCT SERVICE SYSTEM solutions.
Perfect for using at the start of any design or development process, before or during the briefing stage or early on in concept development, you can activate these conversations with collaborators, team members, or clients. The key is to start the conversations at a deeper level to get to a better design outcome.
