About our project

The visual communication design department at Musashino Art University aims to produce young designers for the next generation who have a creative power for innovation by using visual media as a tool to communicate with people and society.

The Design for Social Innovation class is a new program of this department, and 13 students are collaborating with international universities and organizations to begin their research projects of Post-disaster relief and community-rebuilding for Northeastern Japan.

Our concept

Domain・・・
Change the world using power of design.
Mission・・・
To make people responsible about the way we live.
Message・・・
Every environment is a composition of all the people living there. We realized that we need to increase every people ‘s responsibility and awareness, in order to change our environment and the world.
After the 311, the phrase “beyond expectations” became controversial. However, ordinary days are always side by side with extraordinary days, like danger is next neighbor to security.
How can we keep on being awared for the things that are “beyond expectations”? How can we do so, using power of design, as we are being in charge of our own life and environment?
