Three concept posters
Design for Participation
Design for Commoning
Design for Creative Appropriation
all three posters designed completely by me, including the artwork.
Value of these three concepts
The type of designing that was asked of us participating in the Deep Dive elective was new to most of us. The course taught me that there are different social and economic models out there and they require different types of design. Designing for communities in a civic way makes design more a dialogue between the user and the designer: shifting the power relation to a more equal one is often needed. The designer becomes more a meta-designer and the end user becomes the designer. This requires cutting edge understanding of design methods and their role in our western society.
