Since the 1960s along with the conceptual art, idea has become more important than form, and even the idea itself has created art. Real and referential relations, facts and values were being questioned. The artist became a thinker from being a craftsman. The artists began to question both their relationship with the world, with their environment and the present-day concepts. This situation has also affected the design field. Designers woke up from using their creativity and talents for the consumption industry and turned towards social issues. Graphic designers, defined as cut-and-paste artists or practitioners, began to develop systematic ideas for design problems, for interdisciplinary projects, and independently to address issues they question. In addition to designing the products of popular culture, designers have tried to draw attention to the current problems through design. With the technological developments, it became possible for the designer to evolve to the concept developer. Since the 1960s, when the concepts and values were questioned through art and design, the designer has been able to adapt to the current situation with his creativity, multi-faceted thinking ability and communication skills. The aim of this study is to investigate the reflections of conceptual art in the design field; to examine the change in the design process through the productions and the way in which the processed concepts are handled.
