Iridescent Volume 2 Issue 2

Icograda has published the Volume 2 of Iridescent: Icograda Journal of Design Research.

The second issue of the online journal features four papers examining different approaches and purposes of design writing and writing about design history and practice.

The theme, initially proposed by design writer Alice Twemlow, was overseen by Iridescent Supervising Editor Teal Triggs.

"When we began planning this issue over a year ago, we weren't to know design writing would be taking such a centre stage in the design community," Teal noted.

Citing the recent Design and Culture issue and AIGA Blunt conference as examples, Teal observes that "there appears to be a revitalized interest within the academy in debating the role of graphic design writing, including writing about history, critical writing and the role of writing in research."
