About Human-centered Design
Human-centered design is an empathy driven approach to problem solving. It begins with the people you are designing for and ends with new solutions to address their needs and challenges. Human-centered design requires cultivating empathy with the people you’re designing for, generating ideas, modeling and testing out the ideas, and putting your innovative solution out in the world.
