The Graphic Design Research Initiative (GDRI) explores and applies good design research and social design practices in order to solve real world problems where graphic design plays a leading role. The integration of UHD design students as team members convert our collaborations and projects into design laboratories, where team members learn by doing, studying and testing design research and social design techniques in order to find effective solutions.
