Design. Humanity's Best Friend.

Design is everywhere.
It’s the alarm that woke you up.
The news app on your phone.
The tea bags used for your morning brew.
The card you tapped on the bus.
The glasses perched on your nose.
And the words you’re reading right now.
So embedded in our lives
we almost forget it’s there.
Design. Humanity’s Best Friend.
