Human-valued design, with a focus on race and accompanying socio-cultural factors, requires new ways of thinking. Can Design Thinking, with its thesis on solving complex problems, make an impact in this arena? What methods, strategies, tactics, and physical forms result?
My response is _mpathic design, an initiative, pedagogy, service platform, and professional practice. Beginning with empathy, then a process for designing and making that incorporates a self – formulated methodology (the Mosaic) for integrated Design.
The result is a fulsome framework for stakeholders and communities, expanding levels of inclusion in the Design Thinking process.
