Speculative design, Visual Communication
Goldsmiths BA Design collaborated with service design consultancy UsCreates (now FutureGov) on a brief to imagine new prevention and/or relief systems for people facing homelessness in the UK.
We envisaged a speculative insurance system which would serve as homelessness prevention in return for accessing people’s personal data. We explored the insurance industry’s methods of communication, language and visual identity to question the current approaches to predict and prevent homelessness.
The project took a dark satirical tone, hoping to underline the importance of emotional care beyond the cold efficiency of number and data-based solutions.
