“We have a responsibility to create things that are focused on the human experience, things that are centered.” — Yasmine Evjen
Today we’re launching Centered, a new video series focused on human-centered design. Travel the world with host and Google Design Advocate Yasmine Evjen, to explore the intersection of design, product, and people. In the premiere episode, Yasmine follows the International Rescue Committee and volunteers from Google.org in Amman, Jordan as they redesign an app that helps Syrian refugees move from surviving to thriving—a particularly apt subject for World Refugee Day. The series will criss-cross the globe as Yasmine talks to designers, researchers, and engineers, while exploring the impact and importance of a human-centered design process.
