Our mission is to use these skills to help solve social issues and design a better world for everyone. We design in service of the people who must live with our decisions.
We are Vigils in the dark, not accepting the world for what it is, but what it could be
We are Vigilant, standing up for what is right, working with and in service of the people.
We are Vigilant(i)s who take action against the injustices in the world.
VIGILANTi was founded on this very decision in 2017, in a university classroom between three friends in their final year of their design studies. We believed that as designers can do more for the world than just "make things pretty".
To us, design is fundamentally about problem-solving, and we should apply our skills of problem-solving, creativity, and innovation to solve the biggest Social Issues in our society, to help improve the lives of the most vulnerable members of our society.
