Design Harmony: Design’s Evolutionary Inheritance

 The fastest growing influence in design today is the realization that great design improves health and wellness. Studies from Harvard, Johns Hopkins and around the world prove the health benefits of design, and designers need to start taking credit for it. Learn what leading neuroscientists say about the future of our industry, and the potential that exists. The design world is just beginning to realize the paradigm shift, and designers are the epiphany that needs to take place. Are you ready?

 “It’s about time designers get the credit you deserve…you improve your clients’ health . Period!”
