“HmntyCntrd is without question what we as creators and designers of the future need: a space to come together to connect and develop ourselves and our creative process in a way that moves us forward toward actualization rather than traps us in a never-ending inertia loop of tech-enabled human suffering. It cannot have come at a more crucial and impactful time.”



“Honestly, HmntyCntrd's course was the best thing I’ve done in years... Everyone working in product and UX needs to do it.”
