Abstract
Social design can be understood as a discipline that focuses on using design for good. The notion that designers need and can do good with their design had been proposed by many authors, scholars, and designers throughout design history. In hopes to define and determine if the social design applies to visual communication design, the author conducted a study by reviewing literature samples from a conference and journal that focuses on social design. After analyzing the literature, the author can formulate a framework to define social visual communication design; which is by identifying whether the design is socially based on Its form, content, or context. From 43 papers that are sampled, the author found that most visual communication design papers can show social qualities when discussing the context of the project/design. Other findings on this study are the fact that social aspects in the form are seen more on papers presenting design projects, while social content is seen more on analytical papers. From this study, the author hoped to be able to open further discussions on social visual communication design.
