It’s 2019 and Mohawk Group is celebrating human-centered design. This year as we look towards the forecast for 2020, we shine a spotlight on the Return to Humanity. After several years of global turmoil, both mankind and nature are in dire need of renewal. How can we become more human in the presence of digital life and artificial intelligence? What even makes us human and how do we get back there? And how can we connect better with nature to remind us who we are?
Through our CEU and trend forecast, we will share these ideas and show how design can inspire and motivate positive change in a shifting world dynamic. Focusing on the qualities that make us human, our 2020 Vision will highlight the language of design expressed through the hand, heart, and mind.
To attend one of our CEUs, visit here to connect with your local rep – and see more of the inspiration behind Return to Humanity on our Pinterest!
