Founded in 2017.
Human Being Design is a full-service design practice at the intersection of personal identity and community.¹

We design for human beings through all stages of life, and after.

1. Our practice explores how an individual can negotiate their relationship to a collective through the medium of the built environment, in self-exploration, identity expression, and a Frankl-ian search for meaning. We ask ourselves what we can do, through the catalyzing forces of design, to aid our clients on this journey.
2. Our practice is grounded in principles of bodily autonomy, and the belief that every human has the right to peaceful, un-oppressed, and non-oppressive self-determination. Within this context, we believe that you have the right to your beliefs, and to live and die by them. As designers we take it as our duty to honor this with empathy, respect, and to the best of our ability: to aid our clients on this journey.
