This website is the launch pad to deliver
values-based design to the Muslim consumer.
Please join us on this journey!
Improve the quality of life in the Ummah in a way that is consistent with Muslim Values, and sustainable. Produce food that is halal and tayyib, that does not deplete or destroy the consumers' health or wider environment. Products that are designed to be less damaging in every regard and longer lasting. Packaging that does not last for a thousand years while being recycled through fish and other animals into the human food chain and possibly our very DNA. Humanity is in crisis and Islam offers a solution. From our food to our consumer products to a massive lack of opportunity. Design for Values....is one step towards changing the world for the better.
Implement the principle that Muslim values hold a defining role in the design and delivery of new products and services for the Muslim consumer - From Food to Education, Opportunity, and Governance. Create an Islamic economic ecosystem offering wide ranging opportunities in a Muslim-friendly world where people can prosper in harmony with their values and beliefs.
Design for Values is a focal point to magnify existing efforts and promote new initiatives. Promote business innovation principles to create new products, new consumer activism, enterprises and sustainable economic development in the Muslim world. Improve life for Muslims and non-Muslims by embracing the holistic nature of Islam, an aspect of Islam that resonates with those on a path of conversion and those who seek to learn from a closer bond between the sacred and the secular. Serving to unite Muslim and non-Muslim in a common cause.
