Join us and embark upon a journey that takes us from the conception of an idea, through the rigor of research and design, to the birth of a product that changes the way people make decisions. Seasoned designer and founder of Design Centered Co., Urooj Qureshi, draws you into the story of how his firm’s latest innovation, Impactor App, was created by putting humans at the center of every decision and how it leads to the transformation of service to product.
