Design for Social Impact: A How-To Guide

Less of a presentation and more of a book, the layout and content were both too good not too share.

“Design for Social Impact: A How-To Guide, summarizes the bulk of IDEO’s learnings and presents them as an invitation to the design industry to participate in an initiative to develop nine design principles for design firms working in the social sector as well as 28 unique modes of engagement that design firms can experiment with.

IDEO discovered a complex set of challenges facing both industries: The social sector was unfamiliar with the practices and protocol of the design industry, while many design firms balance the desire to work in the social sector with the need to be profitable.”

    I’m not having any trouble with the links Greg, the one above points to this file: http://www.ideo.com/images/uploads/work/case-studies/pdfs/IDEO_RF_Guide.pdf

    Can you get it to work?
