Selma Karaahmet Balcı

Abstract


Visual communication design as an interdisciplinary term makes a reference to many disciplines which have focused on communication and presentation point to transmit the messages, prepared as visuals, to target the audience. Especially after the industrial revolution, the visual communication design phenomenon, which in its existence is an influential field in creating consumer-wise shoppers and the visuals are increasing their power with mass communication. Visual communication design as a sustainable phenomenon with more powerful interaction zone, which has been differed from within the several unstable paradigm axis, from Bauhaus to present, maintains its existence by including the aesthetic concerns in designs. Consumption culture has been created by dwelling on the individuals’ consumption perceptions. In post-industrial societies, people aim to satisfy the needs of their egos, by getting a hedonic benefit, rather than their material needs by means of the products they have purchased. At this point, visual communication design as a field, being at the middle of capitalism and consumption culture, it has been an inter-bedded phenomenon with consumption in all ages.
