Glossary of Design Terms

This glossary is aimed at non-designers to help them become familiar with terms used by design teams. It helps clarify the meanings of common design terms through definitions and examples.

It was developed by engaging with a range of global health practitioners and designers who provided input regarding the definitions of terms and examples that help explain each of them.

The glossary includes:

  • Definitions of the terms and their relevance to global health
  • Illustrative examples to contextualize the terms
  • Synonyms and similar words for each term
