Abstract

Theory of Change emerged in the past decades as an approach to better plan, drive and evaluate community initiatives and philanthropic projects, and has since been used more widely to support a variety of innovation processes. Within design practice and design research, however, Theory of Change remains underused and underexplored. This paper intends to focus on two applications of Theory of Change, mostly in light of its potential to visually model and communicate the underlying logic in service design projects. Particularly, the paper will examine how these two different visual representations of Theory of Change had contrasting purposes and, therefore, experimented with varied ways of displaying the key assumptions, activities, outputs and outcomes of the two projects by, for example, operating on visual elements such as scale, texture, colour, transparency, layers, patterns, grids and modularity.
