Introducing: Explorewell, a design reconnaissance blog. I am launching this blog to explore all things design + culture, while maintaining my blog here for my personal work and adventures. Explorewell exists to observe, document and reflect upon how design and culture come together to enrich our lives and add value to our work. The site takes real world observations, travel, field experiences and conversations to further explore their contexts, probe the deeper questions surrounding them, and make sense of how design’s role in them relates to the bigger social picture. Its topics are meant to connect ideas in the social sphere, broaden understanding of design’s role in business and innovation, evaluate shifts in design and culture, and champion beauty.
