Ritual Design

A ritual is a series of actions imbued with meanings which are intentionally conducted by individuals or a group of people. Integrated in our life, rituals add an emotional layer to routines in everyday life and enable us to express the ineffable. They help positively create feelings and transform our emotional states.

Working closely with individuals and organizations, we design tailored rituals to create emotionally engaging and supportive experiences and organizational cultures. Ritual Design consists of four phases leveraging methods such as deep listening, futuring workshops, collaborative prototyping, and more. Its engagement varies from 4 weeks to 12 months.

This work is an extension of Lillian’s graduate thesis, Design Poetics, at Parsons in 2015.
