Good Design Matters.

It touches everything around us. It drives innovation. And it has the power to make life better for everyone.

We make sense of the world for the benefit of the public. Our rigorous programs prepare students to develop solutions that serve the greater good, and our research has life-changing impact.

We’re thankful for the little moments. The magic moments. The “create until you can’t” moments. 

But to be honest, we’re just thankful for every moment we get to have with you.

Nothing is Perfect: Meditation, Virtual Reality and Juvenile Justice 

Currently, one of the largest challenges for kids detained at the San Francisco Unified School District (@sfunified) Court School is a mandatory 14 day quarantine period upon arrival due to COVID-19. 

Although they aren’t completely isolated from the other kids in quarantine, they don’t have access to cathartic amenities like the gym, the garden or the classroom.

Now, in one of Derek Ham's graduate studios, students are tasked with developing a conceptual VR game that is tailored to the specific needs and issues faced by incarcerated youth.

Each game to be developed needed to take into consideration a wide variety of factors and questions, such as: What is the best way to work with those who have undergone trauma and traumatic situations? Is it best to create an educational, remedial or entertaining program? How does this program fit into the current social divisions during incarceration?
