How to enhance understanding, enable creativity, and ease our interactions with the technological environment.

We define Design Ecology as the study of malleable design that is aware of and can seamlessly react to changing environments. This new approach to design will enhance understanding, enable creativity, and ease our interactions with the technological environment. Our relationship with information should be appropriately situated in both spatial and social contexts; thus, while traditional design methods focus on single products and users, we believe that looking at the interplay between multiple people and multiple devices will yield significant results. To this end, we create visual communication that incorporates new display and computational technologies, novel software techniques, and perceptual and cognitive issues.
