Planet Centred Design
There’s a planet-sized elephant in the room. Climate change is a global challenge that we’re all facing in one way or another, and despite the seemingly invisible nature of digital our industry is a significant contributor to carbon emissions. And the problem is growing exponentially.
In this talk I will explore what it means to design in a Planet Centred way. How can we reduce the carbon footprint of the digital products we design and build? Where might there be conflicts with our known practices? And how can we measure success?
At Nomensa we like to do good. To design experiences that are good for our clients and good for their customers. We strive to make the world a better place for people, so naturally we must also consider the needs of the planet we call home. Understanding the power that our design decisions can have is key to being a part of the solution, not the problem.
