Introduction Who’s in the room?
What are some elements of your current communications?
Communication Design It is not just communication strategy and it’s not just visual communication. Communication Design is a systems based approach to analyzing, creating and distributing information with purpose. Communication design is intentional and seeks to align all the elements of our communication system so that we build and strengthen relationships, listen and influence our audiences, move them to action and change the world. It encompasses multiple disciplines including visual, interactive, semantic and marketing communication by incorporating them into an overall process to accomplish human needs.
Social Change and Innovation Communication Design also provides the opportunity for organizations to analyze and understand issues and challenges to development and growth, and approach them through design methodology to create innovative solutions for change.
