The future of visual communication design is almost invisible or why skills in visual aesthetics are important to service design

TL;DR: In this article, a case study of a visual communication honors research project that is indicative of those opportunities and the potential benefits of having highly skilled visual practitioners involved in human centered and service design processes is presented.
Abstract: Over the past 20 years there has been an increase in post-secondary visual communication education in Australia while the growth of the industry itself has been low, meaning an increasing number of graduates compete for a limited pool of jobs1. The use of visualisation in human centered and service design approaches provides alternative employment opportunities for these graduates. This paper presents a case study of a visual communication honors research project that is indicative of those opportunities and the potential benefits of having highly skilled visual practitioners involved in human centered and service design processes. Furthermore, we argue that a consideration of the aesthetics of the visualisation methods used in this context is essential and that visual aesthetics should be a significant part of the service design skillset.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors analyse the contributions to the learning and practicing track of ServDes and categorise them by identifying convergences and defining six emerging topics, which can be summarised in a few directions: 1) beyond learning where more and more, service designers are explicitly or implicitly requested to play the role of educators within organisations; 2) beyond human centred design where the need to better understand the role and the interaction with non-human agents.
Abstract: The paper analyses the contributions to the “learning and practicing’ track of “ServDes.2018 Proof of Concept” and categorises them by identifying convergences and defining six emerging topics. As a result, new roles and responsibilities emerge. They can be summarised in a few directions: 1) beyond learning where more and more, service designers are explicitly or implicitly requested to play the role of educators within organisations; 2) beyond human centred design – where the need to better understand the role of and the interaction with ‘non-human agents’ emerges; 3) beyond organisational change – where the transformational role of design seems to expand from within organisations to the relationships that organisations establish with external actors.

  • ...This is known as kinaesthetic or experiential learning in constructivist learning theory and for this style of learner, learning is more profound when it is connected to their concrete and embodied experience (Kolb, 1984). The aesthetics and embodied aspect of this method therefore aligns well with the learning style of designers and is a far more effective way for them to develop insight than reading extensive bodies of text, as the same literature argues. Furthermore, Silverman (1995) argues that visual spatial learners “perceive the interrelatedness of the parts of any situation” (p....

TL;DR: Auto-ethnography as mentioned in this paper is an approach to research and writing that seeks to describe and systematically analyze personal experience in order to understand cultural experience and treat research as a political, socially-just and socially-conscious act.
Abstract: Autoethnography is an approach to research and writing that seeks to describe and systematically analyze personal experience in order to understand cultural experience. This approach challenges canonical ways of doing research and representing others and treats research as a political, socially-just and socially-conscious act. A researcher uses tenets of autobiography and ethnography to do and write autoethnography. Thus, as a method, autoethnography is both process and product.

TL;DR: There is a change from a user-centered design process to that of participatory experiences, a shift in attitude from designing for users to one of designing with users, and a new design movement that will require new ways of thinking, feeling and working.
Abstract: As a social scientist trained both in psychology and anthropology, I was one of these “experiments.” I began to serve the design process in 1982. In the 1980s I played the role of the human factors practitioner, or “user advocate.” My role was to know the user and to translate that knowing into principles and prescriptions that the designers with whom I worked could understand and use. We called this the user-centered design process. As I learned ways to help make products and information systems more usable, I also studied the designers, especially the ways they visually communicated with each other.
