Exploring preferable futures

In the continuity of a previous post and previous experiments on creativity and visualising preferable futures, this exploration tries to answer a deep and recurring question from my children about the kind of future they will have as they grow up.

Hello! I’m Pascal Wicht. I am a strategic designer, creative director, field researcher, futurist and teacher. I help people and organisations navigate towards preferable futures for humanity and adapt to a world of growing problems that don’t go away.

Welcome to my site, where I fuse critical theory with design. My slow-motion blog is here. I am writing a Codex to help designers drive more impact. I am also documenting my strategic design system Wangjitsu. You can see my explorations with Ai and images over here.

You can connect with me using my contact page form, by scheduling a call or following me on social media.

I tend to publish early and iterate often.
