Design and Resilience and Change

Change is constant. Controlling how one reacts to it is a learnable skill. Design is the craft of introducing desirable change; designers know how to present change in your environment that minimizes your fears.

Design as a discipline is unusually good at establishing tension between the two axes of familiarity and novelty. Design’s fundamental strength lies in guiding us through the process of experiencing (UNDERGOING, navigating, being exposed to) change.
