Firebird Design Lab's mission is to challenge individuals and organizations to create maximum impact via minimal means.

FDL's innovative approach is aimed at engaging one's heart, mind, and hands toward a transformative outcome.  FDL has developed a rigorous low-resource/high creativity process to model holistic problem solving skills and instill self-agency.

FDL‘s unique approach is based on founder Leon Wang’s work in the creative, technical, and educational fields.  Leon has multi-disciplinary design and project management experience -- including architecture, toy design, and activism art.  He has been active in design education at K-12 and university levels, as well as other creativity-based initiatives.

As a tireless advocate for purposeful creativity, Leon conducts intensive on-site studio programs in educational, professional, and activist communities.  He also uses the same process to assist the social justice movement in creating impactful narratives.
