When we’re capable to visually communicate the impact of social issues, we give voice to the voiceless and drive progress. Using Information Design as a tool to empower communities to be informed and take action on pressing social issues, this talk aims to provide a guide for designers and non-designers alike on how information design can be used to raise awareness, inspire action, and drive change in communities.
Dr.Pouline Koh is a design enthusiast and a passionate educator. Her works often focus on using design learning and practices as a mechanism for social good. Throughout her design journey, she is actively involved in design development through working across disciplines on areas related to Information design in digital health & well-being, User experience design, Digital design in communication & culture, and providing design software training to various levels of learners.
