I have been following Emily Pilloton’s work over the last six months and to say I’m impressed with this woman is an understatement. In 2008, with $1,000 in savings, a laptop, and a belief that design can change the world, Emily, a product designer and activist launched Project H Design, a nonprofit that supports inspires and delivers life-improving humanitarian product design.
In a very short time she has demonstrated her vision through world wide design initiatives. I recently purchased her book, Design Revolution—100 Products That Empower People. Pilloton challenges designers to be change makers instead of “stuff creators.” A very inspiring woman who has put her design solutions to good work.
