"The great photographer Robert Capa, who shot some of the most iconic photos of the Second World War, put it this way: ‘If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.’ If you want to have a deep impact on what matters to you, don’t do things at remove. Invest yourself fully. Get close. Now, what does that even mean? First, getting close means moving beyond approaching an issue through the screen on your laptop or phone, or the filter of someone else’s interpretation, and instead finding a way to get to know the individuals whose lives are impacted."

Samantha Power, United States ambassador to the United Nations, 2016 Yale University Commencement Speech

Work at DIG

The Design Impact Group is a studio within the Dalberg Global Development Advisors–a design practice embedded within a strategic consultancy purely focused on social impact. We’re an interdisciplinary team of designers, strategists, researchers, technologists, and makers. We believe in the power of human-centered design tools and methods to empower individuals and inspire innovative, results-oriented solutions to systemic problems in emerging market contexts.

Our work is spread across cultures and contexts––we roll up our sleeves on challenges in agriculture, financial services, global health, education and employment, and mobile development.

Our teams and collaborators live and work out of studios in North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Our current openings are listed below. Please reach out if you are interested in joining our global team.
