2. Key Pillar: IMPACT
Design Phase 2: Creative Direction; From Concept to Consumer
IMPACT: Unfortunately, being blind to a product's total impact is quite common. Most companies have the mentality of "getting the product released as cheap as possible and as quickly as possible." Although you can't possibly know the full impact of your product before it is launched to the public, by observing/being conscious throughout the entire process, you can make a massive change in its impact on the world.
No matter what you create, it will have an impact. Most designers understand how their designs will impact their consumers because they design products to fit their target market; however, many do not think past that point. What about the impact of the materials and working conditions? How your design and product impact is up to you.
