Happiness is often viewed as an ethereal and esoteric concept—a feeling that’s more governed by destiny and circumstance than the product of a well-developed scheme. But living a fulfilled life is mostly within our control, and it’s highly receptive to strategies inspired by creative disciplines. By borrowing from the way designers solve problems—sometimes referred to as design thinking—we can generate innovative solutions for achieving greater happiness.

The conversation regarding the relationship between design and happiness has gained traction in recent years. Whether it’s a witty billboard that makes us chuckle on our commute to work or a chaise lounge perfectly contoured to our spine, the objects and experiences that get the little details right can boost our appreciation of both the world around us and ourselves.
