This section is about re-considering what it can mean in terms of subjectivity and values to work as a designer today. As we are living through a period of environmental, economic and social upheaval, it becomes key to ask what elements of the design profession might need considerable reframing.

The thoughts collected in this section are by no means exhaustive of the areas that need transformation, but represent only our own approach to where we see change necessary and possible.
