About Living Principles

Originally conceived by AIGA—the professional association for design—the Living Principles for Design celebrate the efforts of all partners, amplifying their voices and working collectively to move the sustainability conversation forward across disciplines and around the world.

The Living Principles for Design aim to guide purposeful action, celebrating and popularizing the efforts of those who use design thinking to create positive cultural change.

Drawing from decades of collective wisdom, theory and results, the Living Principles framework weaves environmental, social, economic, and cultural sustainability into an actionable, integrated approach that can be consistently communicated to designers, business leaders, educators and the public.
