Helping you build a general competency to design helio-centric technologies.
Wait, what’s helio-centricy? Helio-centricity is designing for the heliosphere – our neighbourhood around the sun. It is a preferable frame to other “centricities” within design. Customer-centricity reduces humans to consumers. Human-centricity often prioritizes individuals over societies. Society-centricity fails to reconcile value differences between societies, yet alone account for humanity’s impact on the non-human – our earth. Design needs a new universalism.
