Human-centered design embodies and extends the sense of being human
Human-centered design is about understanding the contexts of people.
- Their individual physical and cognitive capacities
- Their learnt, provided or missing capabilities
- Their communities that include and exclude them.
The centering is not tightening or selfish: it’s not a user or consumerist sense of individualism.
It is broadening and generous: placing the person more fully into their embodied and extended sense of being human.
