The ultimate design artifact.
Designing for people, made easy.
From human body dimensions to text legibility guidelines, Humanscale is still relevant today as a quick-reference guide for designers across industries and disciplines.
After finding so much value in these manuals for our own work and speaking with other designers who use Humanscale to create iconic products, we knew we had to find a way to enable more people to have access to these tools. By bringing Humanscale to Kickstarter, we can launch this project at a scale that will allow us to do just that.
Nine data selectors.
One monumental collection of design history.
The Humanscale manuals were published as three separate sets ––Humanscale 1/2/3, Humanscale 4/5/6, and Humanscale 7/8/9. Each set contains one booklet and three gorgeous, double-sided selectors equipped with rotary dials that allow easy reference to a wide array of human factors and ergonometric data.
