Welcome to Future Human by Design (FHbD)

27 July 2020

With a framing of Design Research and Practice, this blog publishes a range of research, which explores the overlaps of Futures, Design, and Philosophy.

The research covers a range of topics including: Object-Oriented Philosophies, Philosophy of Design, Philosophy of Technology, Humanitarian Scenarios, Futures Thinking, Design Studies, and Ontological Design.

Originally, this project was created by Steven Santer, as part of the research and assignment work for the RMIT University’s, Masters of Design Futures (MDF) Design Leadership coursework. This blog now includes further research into Philosophy of Design which formed part of my capstone research project and ongoing exploration of philosophical considerations in design research and praxis.

If you are new to Futures Thinking, check out the 1 minute future series of animations that explain some core concepts and terms. This is a series still in development and I will be adding more over the coming months.

Through blog articles, Future Human by Design will continue to grow and explore these fascinating intersecting disciplines and methods of thinking and doing.

Enjoy the topics, and together let us design a more futural, equal and just social and ecological conscious society.
