From the talk by Professor  Anne Chick, she explained that design for social impact involves systems, entrepreneurial and innovative thinking. It is a social innovation, a new idea that works in meeting society goals. It is a process of change emerging from the creative re-combination of existing assets, the aim of which is to achieve socially recognized goals in new way. This project brief isn’t just creating nice design, web page design; As a graphic designer, we are to make things happen. Below are some research which made me understand more of what is design for social impact.
