Abstract

Many theoretical approaches have framed the relationship between design and computation, both as part of the design process and as part of the design output. While the presence of a computational component is becoming more and more prevalent both in new media old-media devices communication products, computational aspects are generally considered to be separate from the design process. This paper proposes a conceptualization of Communication Design outputs in algorithmic terms, highlighting the rule-base, systemic and abstract components that characterize them. In the discussion section, the perspectives, advantages and drawbacks of such a conceptualization are analyzed in relation to current research in computational thinking, present technological trends, and its possible role in design education.
