Design has the power to connect our world, inform our world, and change our world. It has the power to affect moments, days, lives, and societies. The scale of possibility is infinite and this month, we’re going to focus on how design can be used for, well, good. We’re excited to welcome Tyler Galloway to talk to us about the social aspects of design and its power to positively affect our world.

His work and that of his students has been published in the books “Designing for Social Change”, “The Design of Dissent”, “Reproduce and Revolt” and the Turkish socio-political design magazine “No Tasarim” as well as appearing in national and international political/social poster exhibitions. His design studio, the new programme, is focused on facilitating community-based social change through both client-initiated and designer-initiated work. Tyler holds a BFA from Missouri State University, a MGD from North Carolina State University and loves riding bikes, punk rock, vegan cookies and being a dad.
