Using Non-human Personas in Design

Introducing non-human personas for designing products, businesses, and services that are kinder to the planet and people

Session #2, 14th Sep 2023

Non-human and non-user personas enable designers, innovators, and decision-makers to also represent the needs of environments, animals, and invisible humans impacted by products and businesses.

Create them for rivers, trees, bees, e-waste, factory workers, child miners—any ignored or unseen actant impacted by human design and activity.

In this 30 min webinar, I share my learnings from my experiments and from designers from around the world to expand human-centred design to be ‘more than human’.

Take the lead

Lead the way by redesigning your products and business to reduce environmental and social harm and regenerate the people and environments your system relies on.

“The ideas really resonated with me as I’ve felt this growing unease with human centred design’s echo chamber”

“Super helpful tools for designers… I’ll be sharing them with the students.”

“An amazing book about the topic.”
