Human-Centred Design
Volume 01

Volume 01


Volume 01 contains just over 200 pages of inspiring, informative and engaging content curated by The Local Project. The magazine explores a wonderfully diverse world of design, but uniting each feature is a human-centred approach to design. By which we simply mean, design that looks beyond the immediate moment and toward the broader context of human experience – of place, of history, of materiality and of culture.
