About Project H Design:
Product design initiatives for Humanity, Habitats, Health, and Happiness.
Project H Design is a charitable organization that supports, inspires, and delivers life-improving humanitarian product design solutions to global communities in need. We champion industrial design as a tool to address social issues, a vehicle for global life improvement, and a catalyst for individual and community empowerment.
Project H Design encourages the reorientation of the design industry towards a more socially-based and humanitarian entity through three core efforts:
- Support: Provide an online index resource of innovative and socially-oriented products both existing and in development, designers, and organizations currently engaged in humanitarian-based industrial design initiatives.
- Inspire: Host case-study based competitions to facilitate the collection, discussion, and production of life-improving products that address global issues (i.e. education, health, water sanitation, etc).
- Deliver: Work with communities to assess their needs, connect them to designers, design to their context, and fund and deliver new or existing product solutions.
