"THE BEST WAY TO PREDICT THE FUTURE IS TO DESIGN IT."
r. Buckminster Fuller
THE DISRUPT DESIGN PROPOSITION
Design is a powerful creative force used to shape and influence society. It has, for as long as humans have been standing on two legs, influenced every moment of our lives. From the way we sit to the structure of society, everything in the material and social world is designed.
We believe we can intentionally use design to positively influence the systems, services, and products at play in the world around us, in order to create change that changes the future.
Disrupt Design creates provocations, processes, projects, and products that activate positive social change, challenge critical global issues, and contribute to conversations around the ways we can all embrace sustainability and social change in proactive and positive ways.
WE TAKE ON BIG CHALLENGES AND CREATE SUBSTANCE-BASED, SIMPLIFIED TOOLKITS THAT HELP TO AGITATE and ACTIVATE POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE.
Disruption is about intent to change a system. Whereas innovation is iterative change to an established status quo, disruption is the rewriting of the scripts through propositions that make the old obsolete. Disrupting by design is an intentional act to challenge the status quo and to make change that helps the world work better for all of us. This requires know-how, toolsets and a community of practice.
We are catalyzing a community of creatives who share our passion for creative change making.
Started by Dr. Leyla Acaroglu 2014, Disrupt Design exists to challenge, explore and make change with substance, respectfully, collaboratively and creatively.
