At the end of January 2017, two hundred and fifty people gathered at the SVA theater in New York to begin the conversation about measuring the impact of social design on health. It was informative, exciting, energized. And it wasn’t enough. Since then, we continued the conversation in London with our friend Gill Wildman (watch the movie of that or read the dialog), are just launching another edition of The Understatement, all about Measured, and are working on the online resource, The Measured Manual.

How to know if you’re using social design.
Depending on the type of work you do, you may use different names for social design, such as Human Centered Design (HCD), Service Design, Social Innovation Design or even Design Thinking. You may alternatively be engaging in activities that are part of the social design process, such as collaborative processes or citizen science. In other words, you may be using the social design process and calling it something else.
