Things tend to work better when they’re designed specifically for you.
Human-centred design is a process that starts with the people you’re designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor-made to suit their needs.
Designing policy and initiatives in this way can go a long way in building a deeper connection and empathy with the people you’re designing for, as well as help in generating tons of ideas; building prototypes; sharing what you’ve created with the people you’re designing for, and eventually putting your innovative new solution out in the world.
Human-centred methods tap into the lived experience and needs of individuals, after all, who knows the real-world practicalities of life better than the citizens living it.
