Bringing participatory and critical mechanisms
together to fuel creative action
As an active designer, Denielle’s principal area of concentration is participatory and collaborative design, with attention to the inclusion of diverse design approaches and outcomes. Her aim is to introduce the notion of empathy as an essential trait of design, rather than a methodology focused on calculating profit and sales. She describes her design practice as a universal language that works across disciplines, industries, and borders to move beyond consumer products to consider environments, interactive tools, and engaging experiences. Her work experience is as diverse as her clients, with projects conceived for global organizations such as the World Bank and small start-up companies such as Tilt Inc.
