what is communications design?

Definitions from the Oxford Dictionaries:

Communication(s):
• The imparting or exchanging of information or news
• The successful conveying or sharing of ideas and feelings
• Means of connection between people and places, in particular sending or receiving information

Design:
• The art or action of conceiving of and producing plan or drawing that shows the look and function of something before it is built or made
• An arrangement of lines or shapes created to form a pattern or decoration
• Purpose, planning, or intention that exists behind an action, fact, or material object
• To do, plan or create with a specific purpose or intention in mind

Therefore,

Communications Design is the art of conceiving and producing the purpose, planning and intention behind the successful conveying or sharing of ideas, feelings, information and news.

In other words,

Communication design consultants (like me) specialize in planning and creating content that makes a connection with others.
