What is the relationship between trust and design?
Can you design trust? Can you trust design?
Trust Design was a research project I created and directed for Premsela, the Netherlands Institute for Design in Amsterdam to explore these questions.
Over the course of two years, I wrote and edited a publication series in collaboration with Volume Magazine, led students at Design Academy Eindhoven on a semester long investigation into designing for trust, talked about the relationship between trust and design at the Milan Design Fair, Amsterdam’s PICNIC festival, and much more.
You can find some of my writing on the relationship between trust and design on Amazon here and here, or by clicking on the book covers below (if you have Adblock enabled, you won’t see the book covers, so use the links above).
While the formal project with Premsela has concluded, I still speak frequently on the relationship between trust and design in cities, public spaces and products and services.
Please get in touch if you’d like discuss me speaking or writing about the relationship between trust and design.
