BaoDesignLab focuses on building capacity in communities where resources are scarce by way of design. As a non-profit design consultancy, we work with social innovators and entrepreneurs to improve the well-being of people in underserved communities. We use ethnographic-style research, insight analysis, prototyping, and strategic planning to frame and solve problems in the social sector alongside our community partners.

BaoDesignLab is comprised of a cosmopolitan network of designers and social entrepreneurs, spanning continents and disciplines, but united in our idealism.

BaoDesignLab is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization registered in the state of Illinois.
