IDEO’s Living Climate Change website aims to host a conversation around the most defining challenge of our time. As climate change touches every aspect of our lives, how will it change us? How will we adapt? The Living Climate Change site invites design thinkers to participate in imagining what life will be like in 20 or 30 years as we move along the path toward reduced carbon emissions. Which behaviors will change and which will be preserved? is a place to contribute fresh thinking and share provocative ideas about the future.


The concept for the video was developed at IDEO by client director and design director Roshi Givechi.

Design, animation, and visual effects were produced at Bonfire, San Francisco, by creative director Matt Silverman, associate creative director Phil Spitler, executive producer Lisa Hinman, Rotoscope artist Marco Salsiccia, 2D animator Jason Coursey, illustrator Coco Tardiff, 3D animators Bobby Van Dyke, Adam Oestergaard.
