Inclusive Marketing, Conversation Design, Accessibility in Color Design: three areas in which the ‘Intention mindset’ plays a pivotal role in designing more equitable products, services, and experiences. Join our Salesforce Design team as they discuss the importance of being intentional in design from ideation to iteration. Learn how design leaders are bringing self-awareness to consequences and mapping the impact of their work.

Intention is one of the four mindsets of Relationship Design. It’s a creative approach for design practitioners to use to drive business and social value by focusing on building relationships with customers, employees, and the community.


The Salesforce Design teams are dedicated to elevating design as a practice and advocating for its power to create trusted relationships with users, customers, partners, and community. We’re bringing together our internal and external design communities, sharing our knowledge with the industry, and helping redefine the future of business by putting relationships front and center. We are putting a name to this relationship-oriented design practice, Relationship Design, and bringing its philosophy, tools, and methodologies to our ecosystem and the world at large.
