Exploring the role of design anthropology

A favorite aspect of our daily work is our opportunity to write. Through our ongoing series’ of essays and articles we strive to explore the fields of design, its practitioners, and the impact of design on (and its place in) history. Writing is something that we feel strongly about—an unenforced obligation as contributing members of this profession. Not all designers feel that pull—the need for written expression and exploration, and that’s all right. For us, though, it’s vital to practice.

Through our ongoing series’ of essays and articles we strive to explore the fields of design, its practitioners, and the impact of design on (and its place in) history.

We’ve been fortunate to team up with some amazing organizations over the past few years, producing some great content and having some amazing conversations with those on the bleeding edge of technology and design. Our most recent article for the conference series, WebVisions, is a short interview with NYC-based design anthropologist Amélie Lamont. The piece, Examining Cultural Need: Discussing Design Anthropology with Amélie Lamont, is now up on the WebVisions blog and their orbital publication on Medium.
