Design for Demand – Designers Lecture

“A strategic tool for emerging designers, to accelerate their ability to design for a more circular economy. Our design strategies focus on the consumer; looking to empower them, to influence their behaviour and ultimately to create more demand for circular products, services and experiences. Sustainable options need to trigger consumer desire if they are to go mainstream, and create the necessary cost efficiencies in the process. We need to leave outdated perceptions – of sustainable products as more expensive or lower quality – behind. ” from Forum for the Future website
