Social Design

The social design research group was established in 2015 at the Department of Design & Communication / SDU


The group has a keen interest in how people can be involved in participatory design processes leading to social value for the individual and society at large. By social value, we refer to changes at a human scale that is felt to be beneficial for marginalised or vulnerable societal groups and communities.

We use design methods to make sense of wicked problems, as a way of engaging and co-designing with people and as a process of making artefacts or services enabling people to cope with difficult situations in life.

Through a number of research projects we have documented our ability to evaluate social design outcomes by bridging disciplines from the human and social sciences.
