Product design initiatives for Humanity, Habitats, Health, and Happiness.

Project H Design is a charitable organization that supports, inspires, and delivers life-improving humanitarian product design solutions. We champion industrial design as a tool to address social issues, a vehicle for global life improvement, and a catalyst for individual and community empowerment.


Project H Design encourages the reorientation of the design industry towards a more socially-impactful and humanitarian entity through three core efforts:

  • Support: Provide an online index resource of innovative and socially-oriented products both existing and in development, designers, and organizations currently engaged in humanitarian-based industrial design initiatives.

  • Inspire: Host case-study based competitions to facilitate the collection, discussion, and production of life-improving products that address global issues (i.e. education, health, water sanitation, etc).

  • Deliver: Work with communities to assess their needs, connect them to designers, design to their context, and fund and deliver new or existing product solutions.
