Designing with empathy

By exploring human emotions through a creative lens, MsThighlights how the ability to understand and feel for others can facilitate an artist’s creative process….

Drawing from the emotional experiences of others helps a creative thinker build a connection with their audience.

In whichever way it is utilised, empathetic creativity helps solving problems whether these are social, financial or technological. It brings social issues to light and forms bridges between people, identifying that each life is, in many ways, similar to our own.
