UC Berkeley's

Human-Centered

Design Consultancy

Berkeley Innovation (BI) is the home of human-centered design at UC Berkeley. Since 2003, we’ve united makers, thinkers, tinkerers, and doers from a wide range of disciplines behind a shared love for design innovation.

Our mission is to connect Berkeley students to collaborative innovation through education, practice, and thought leadership. Each semester, we provide educational opportunities through guest speakers, designathons, and design "bootcamps." Our consultants tackle real world design problems for our clients and industry partners. In addition to consultant work, we host a variety and social and career events to foster a strong design community at Cal.
