We are living in extraordinary times as COVID-19 continues to cause crises across the world. Could designers make use of design thinking to solve urgent problems and come up with innovative solutions?

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to get every site visitor to convert. Eventually, businesses will need to turn to behavioral analytics and figure out why visitors aren’t turning into customers.
An ethical approach to design is built on questions, not preconceived notions of right and wrong. But what questions should we ask, and how do we classify our answers?
