Having real impact today often means doing work that fosters change. Change that challenges previously held, often harmful beliefs, ideologies, and ways of existing. Change for the better is always welcome here.
As beautiful as the human experience can be, it gets messy, inconvenient, and unpredictable. Therefore, it is crucial that we approach the issues that disproportionately impact these journeys with openness. A willingness to hear and bring light to the nuances falling through the cracks of this immensely complex, convoluted society.
Failure here is embraced and explored as a means to enhance our collective understanding and deepen our insight into solutions that’ll get us to the end goal.
We often tackle some pretty heavy issues, so some fun will have to be thrown in the mix to ease the stress. A huge part of coping through anything, after all, is a healthy balance of hard work and having as much fun as possible along the way.
Fostering long-lasting change through design requires collaboration amidst community; specifically the communities and groups who have historically been left out of the conversations, rooms, experiences, policy-making.
Without the endless desire to learn and attain knowledge, we will remain stagnant. Growth is rooted in the likes of knowledge, experience, acceptance, and self-awareness. Enough to know when one needs to set aside their ego and pride, go back to the beginning, and learn all over again.
Patience, empathy, and vulnerability are some of the key the foundational building blocks of having truly meaningful impact.
Let’s face it, being creative disruptors takes a lot of vigor, vigilance, perseverance and faith. It’ll also take a lot of confidence and fearlessness. In tandem with foundational mountain-moving virtues like love an empathy; fearlessness and confidence weigh just as much.
