Design Action x London Design Festival
13-20 September 2020
Design Action was a digital showcase and events programme that took place at London College of Communication. The work celebrated creative activism and highlighted the work of LCC’s Design School, as students and staff anticipated new futures in an uncertain world.
In the wake of the global pandemic, LCC's Design School tested their Manifesto against the shifting requirements of a changed world.
Design Action featured a range of projects and work in progress from the School’s dynamic and collaborative community. It questioned cultural, technological and disciplinary boundaries and confronted the social, systemic and ecological challenges of our time.
The programme included:
- An emerging research platform which explores the shifting definitions, debates and practices of graphic design
- A look at professional design practice in the wake of COVID-19
- An exploration of new ecological systems and tools
- A vision of the world in 2030 based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals
- An interaction design communication which rethinks concepts of audience participation, presence, and space.
Design Action is part of London Design Festival.
