In this paper, we present ten (10) preliminary principles for designer resilience. These principles are generated from the results of workshops with Dutch design students, global educators, researchers and design practitioners, conducted over the last eighteen months. We identify students’ needs for resilience towards challenges inherent to the design process: concerns about impact on people and planet: pressure to perform: and shaping future design careers. We further establish a pedagogical foundation to promote resilience and wellbeing via the presented principles for designer resilience.

Keywords: design, education, resilience, wellbeing, pedagogy, didactics
