At DiPi, the power of design is applied to problems that affect people’s health, wellbeing, and daily lives. Our work is public domain so everyone benefits.

Weaving together the stories of 8 chronic pain patients from Solano to Sacramento to Shasta County, Outpatient Radio explores ways to help patients and communities talk about chronic pain and chronic pain treatment.

You’ll find downloadable tools for chronic pain treatment under The Pain Project, our interactive timeline on participatory practices over the last 50 years, a project to support Type 1 diabetes management under The Type 1 Youth Project, and more!

DiPi Director Susan Verba is invited to present at the annual Napa Pain Conference held August 17-20 in Napa Valley, CA. Her talk will focus mainly on patient education materials, including best practices for document design and the use of plain language within the clinical setting.

The Sappi “Ideas that Matter” grant program recognizes and supports designers who, in partnership with a nonprofit organization, promote positive change. With our partner Hill Country Health and Wellness Center, a community clinic in California’s rural Shasta County, we are creating tools that create awareness about pain treatment options, invite discussion, help build trust, and work toward better patient outcomes through shared decision-making.

Creative folks of all skill levels are invited to this presentation by UC Davis Design alum Tracy Manuel to hear and share ideas about how to make process documentation easier, more meaningful, and more fun!

We make ordinary experiences more positive by redesigning everyday things.

We believe design is democratic.

We bring together a unique set of people with diverse skills.

We live at UC Davis. Our work connects with people.
