The Curry Stone Foundation is the inspiration of Cliff Curry, a FAIA architect, urban planner and developer, and historical archaeologist Dr. Delight Stone, RPA. The foundation supports groups and individuals using social impact design to build healthier, more vital communities and actively advocates for the use of design as a tool for social change. The website is a repository for the ongoing podcast series: Social Design Insights.

We developed a holistic strategy for the website to create greater accessibly to information, improve the user experience and inspire people to positively change the world through design.
