These Postcapitalist Design (PCD) Guidelines are intended to practically guide the work of transforming projects, practices, and disciplines—including and beginning with design currently done for capitalist enterprise. As a group, the guidelines are designed to function uniquely at each of these layers, representing different contexts, scales, and speeds of transformation. Each set of guidelines comprises a series of questions for designers to consider as they navigate the unique contexts of their work. In these guidelines, the strategies take a form directly applicable to designerly approaches for synthesizing disparate needs into design solutions. Each guideline is posed as a “How might we…” question.
