DESIGNING FOR CHANGE

Icograda, the International Council of Graphic Design Associations, posts weekly eNews with updates and articles from the global design community. Visual Culture co-founder David Oberholtzer recently contributed an article called “Designing for Change”. Here’s an excerpt:

With Earth Day quickly approaching, it seems appropriate to highlight design for social and environmental change. Environmentally we are at a tipping point, if mankind proceeds the current rate, the consequences of our actions will be somber, to say the least. While standing at this crossroads, it begs the following questions: As a community, can design be a proponent for positive change? What is our role in the greater society? What is the best means to maximize our efforts? While there may be no simple answer, forging a dialog with one another can aid the design world in developing strategies to tackle some of the most pressing environmental, social, and economic issues of our time.
