Solve messy problems with elegant solutions, not brute force.

Led by the very best practitioners of user experience design, we explore people’s motivations, behaviors and relationships to help untangle social challenges, develop much more effective tools and, ultimately, make the world a better place.

If visitors to genocide museums emerge with hope – more so than fear, grief or outrage – they are much more likely to enlist in the fight for social justice.

If every leisure tourist gives a single $5 tip on a four-day visit, the average income of professional musicians in New Orleans increases $10,000 a year.

If teachers see mindfulness as a classroom management technique and not another new curriculum, they will naturally and enthusiastically share best practices with each other.
