What is impact design?

“Impact design” represents a wide spectrum of innovative, scalable, and measurable design solutions that address some of the most epic challenges of our time.

Drawing from the fields of “social impact design” and “public interest design,” impact design focuses on measuring and maximizing positive impact—social, environmental, or economic—in the communities served.
