After a decade of focusing her career on figuring out how to use design as a catalyst for positive social and environmental change, five years refining the Disruptive Design Method and over two years of teaching it to creative rebels and change agents around the world, Leyla has finally put the process down on paper (or in this case, on screen? It's a downloadable PDF.) We're excited to share the release of the Disruptive Design Method Handbook(!), a must-read for anyone interested in challenging the status quo and shifting systems to make the world work better for all of us.
For more about the method, the handbook, and the motivation behind it, check out Leyla's medium post about it.
Designer or not, the Disruptive Design Method is all about an activated, intentional approach to understanding and evolving the critical problem sets around us — no matter how big or small your sphere of influence is. The method involves an iterative three-part process of mining, landscaping, and building systems interventions that effect change, and Leyla walks you through it, step by step, in this new handbook.
