Making Socially Relevant Projects Successful
The publication Beyond Design: Making Socially Relevant Projects Successful is now available at Slanted Shop.
The time has come in which graphic designers are playing an important role in rendering ever more complicated information transparent and understandable for a wider audience. To stress this urgency, Renate Boere dove headfirst in the world of project management lingo, confidentiality statements, copyright, complicated contracts, the search for stakeholders, and grant applications. This journey resulted in the designer’s novel Beyond Design: Making Socially Relevant Projects Successful.
This nonfiction novel provides insights into the contemporary, often hybrid, practice of today’s multi-talented graphic designers. The story tells how Boere decides to take matters into her own hands by working on socially relevant design projects. An exciting and informative book that gives insights into the designer’s do’s and don’ts while working on projects from start to finish.
While writing the designer’s novel Renate Boere discovered a simple ten-step method that anyone can use for self-initiating a project. In addition to the book she invented Beyond Design, The Game of Social Solutions which is the perfect workshop tool for anyone interested in setting up their own socially relevant design project.
