Thinking less, living more: Creating a human shaped world
We need to create a more human shaped world. The more we are connected, the more demands on our attention, the more things we ‘have’ to do. Means there is less time, or more pressured time for living life and enjoying life.
3 of the greatest design drivers to help with this are the:
- Anticipation of our needs and desires
- Automation of task and chores
- Personalized bespoke tailored experiences
Exploring the already emerging services, who are beginning to provide experience which align to this. And looking at some of the pitfalls of where these services can go too far. We can identify a number of principles for creating a more human world, taking them into how designers and businesses can apply them to new and existing services.
How to make an existing service (or create new services) more anticipatory, more automated, more personalize and ultimately allow us to live in a more human shaped world.
