DESIGN THINKING & LEGAL DESIGN
This might be just what the world - and especially the legal sector - has been waiting for
What is design thinking?
Design thinking is a process for creative problem solving, with a focus on empathy for the user. It can be used to solve any problem. We love the method because it uses empathy as a catalyst for creativity and change. With design thinking, you can make sure you and your company have a positive impact on society or you can improve the wellbeing of your employees.
And what is legal design?
When design thinking is applied in the field of law, we talk about legal design. Basically, legal design is a tool to transform the legal sector and make it more user-friendly. The user can be anyone, like a client who needs advice, an overworked employee or an app user.
As an example, you can turn complex legal documents and contracts into something that your users/customers can easily understand. Or you can create a workplace where lawyers thrive. If you work with legal tech, adding the magic of legal design will make everything run more smoothly and users will love it.

Why should you care?
We know all know what it feels like to sign a contract we can't read, let alone understand. But what happens when you start designing for the user? Here are some miracles that can legal design can lead to:
Customers feel empowered, safe and respected.
Corporate transparency builds trust and attracts customers.
Customers experience less or no anxiety when signing terms of conditions they understand.
If you are a lawyer, your relationship to your clients will improve.
Client acquisition is easier when you've learnt how to skip the legal jargon.
Why should you choose Gentle Rev?
Our Founder Viveca Fallenius is a legal design pioneer and studied design thinking at the prestigious d.school at Stanford University in 2015. She has since then done a broad range of work such as designing new types of contracts, developed methods of client acquisition, organised legal design workshops and worked for the California Department of Justice. She leads workshops, acts as an advisor and takes on legal design projects directly.
And why do we care?
One of the reasons why we love design thinking is that it works best if you showcase empathy, listening skills, collaboration, creativity and a growth mindset. The skills we learn through the process are vital if we want to re-design our lives and our society. Once you've worked with design thinking, it may, through its own generative power, influence your life and business in many ways.
