Title:
Socially engaged graphic design - future prospects
Authors:
Skopinska, Anna
Abstract:
Good design and socially engaged design were studied in the broad context of the existing neoliberal political status quo. The definition and main features of good design were established based on: examples of good pieces of design, design history and core books on the subject. In this piece were discussed: ethical dimension of graphic design profession, sustainability in graphic design, political context of works as well as the graphic designer himself, the importance of choices he/she makes. The idea was raised here that socially engaged graphic design may be an extremely powerful medium for the communication of ideas and may help to shape society’s awareness. The research conducted included meeting selected graphic design professionals from the United Kingdom and Poland who actively act in socially engaged graphic design and make an important mark in public discussion. The subject of socially engaged graphic design was researched practically in a form of Grafik Rebel Magazine. The magazine and its blog have become a great platform for communicating ideas to the wider public.
