The Intergalactic Design Guide

“Design has built global brands, disrupted industries, and transformed our lives with technology. It has also contributed to the complex challenges we face today. In The Intergalactic Design Guide, business strategist and designer Cheryl Heller shows how social design can help address our most pressing challenges, from poverty to climate change.

Social design offers a new approach to navigate uncertainty, increase creativity, strengthen relationships, and develop our capacity to collaborate. Innovative leaders like Paul Farmer, Oprah Winfrey, and Marshall Ganz have instinctively practiced social design for decades. Heller has worked with many of these pioneers, observing patterns in their methods and translating them into an approach that can bring new creative energy to any organization. From disrupting the notion of “expert” by seeking meaningful input from many voices to guiding progress through open-ended questions instead of five-year plans, social design changes how humans relate to each other, with powerful positive impacts.

The Intergalactic Design Guide explains eleven common principles, a step-by-step process, and the essential skills for successful social design. Nine in-depth examples—from the CEO of the largest carpet manufacturer in the world to a young entrepreneur with a passion for reducing food waste—illustrate the social design process in action.

Social design is a new kind of creative leadership that generates both traditional and social value, and can change the way we all view our work. Whether you are launching a start-up or managing a global NGO, The Intergalactic Design Guide provides both inspiration and practical steps for designing a more resilient and fulfilling future.”

This Human Book – – How to Be the Person Designing for Other People

This Human Book

This Human was published by BIS to critical acclaim in April. The author is Dr. Melis Senova, a pioneer in human-centered design. She was a featured speaker at SXSW this year where she discussed her book and the motivations behind its creation. Her presentation set record attendance and her books sold out. This Human focuses on people who are determined to have impact with their work and what it means to be human in this time of rapid change and shift.

She is the founder of her own global strategic design consultancy, Huddle, and a highly-regarded and enterprising thought leader. Her vast business experience, underpinned by a Ph.D. in Human Factors (human-centered design), sees her focused on reshaping the super systems of the future. This reshaping is essential to ensure we address the complex challenges facing humanity and the planet.

Dr. Senova believes we can change our realities by changing our minds. Based in Australia, Dr. Senova is also the founder of Huddle Labs, a research capability innovating the definition of value in a post-capitalist society; Huddle Academy, a school focused on building creative problem solving capabilities for individuals and organizations; and Huddle Foundation, a platform that curates the connection between designers, philanthropists and social enterprises. Huddle has worked with global institutions including ING Bank, Suncorp, and Bupa as well as the New South Wales and Victorian governments to implement value-based systems for people and build the next generation of organizations and government.
