The Intergalactic Design Guide: A Quantum Approach for Human and Business Potential

Over the past 10 years or so, the same methods used to spark love for new cars, technologies and toys have been used to design new ways for people to think and behave.

Presenting the culmination of a lifetime of pioneering work on the front lines of design and communications, award winning designer and business strategist Cheryl Heller will preview her upcoming book through a series of highly visual case studies that illustrate where and how design is working to solve the daunting problems of our time: poverty,injustice, unsafe food systems, water, health and the effects of climate change. These are challenges that impact industry, governments, cities, foundations and every resident of the world.

Learn the latest on how design today has a new, more direct and urgent purpose: to inspire healthier relationships—with each other, between us and the the earth, and with the machines and technology that have become such an integral part of our lives.
