Social design

I just watched the Professor Pelle Ehn video, which is part of the a 10 x 10 Design Futures video series.

The notion of social design (wikipedia starting point) caught my ear because of the studio I am co-facilitating at the moment. In this studio media students are working with communication design students on communication strategies for the not-for-profit Lentara. Some recent publicity on the studio…on mediafactory and via RMIT news – Design and media students making a difference with Lentara
