Communication Design and all of its designers have the ability, intelligence and mindset to make the greatest impact to the world’s biggest challenges. This group intends to share design-focused resources, and offer an observational voice on Visual Communication and Design Ethics.
With enthusiasm for creative intelligence, education and design-led innovation, this group is heavily influenced by the growing recognition for socially and ethically conscious design and aims to integrate predictions of our future society, with design research and observational comment. If you have any socially conscious designs, observations or events - please add your images!
