To be relevant in today’s economy, businesses must think about more
than just their bottom line. In October 2012, at “Gain: AIGA Design for Social Value Conference,” business and
social innovation leaders from a variety of industries gathered in San Francisco to share their
visionary approaches to creating social value. Presenters
demonstrated the broadening role design
plays in institutional strategy, leadership, process and service, and
product and message, and discussed how the creative attributes of designers
provide special advantages to tackling socially relevant projects and
enhancing the human experience.
