ITERATIONS: Design Research and Practice Review

The IDI is proud to support ITERATIONS, a mixed-content, multi-disciplinary peer review in which designers and design researchers in Ireland and internationally document, reflect and present their processes. Issue 06 ( February 2018) with Ed. Marc O'Riain is now available to purchase.

Through ITERATIONS, the IDI supports our design research community by promoting reflection in practice.

With the first Irish Design Research and Practice Review, Iterations, we aim to engage and activate on design issues.

Design outcomes vary between different projects and fields. Yet the process of creative exploration and experimentation is universal. Iterations is a platform for designers and researchers to document and present their practices.

EARLIER EDITIONS

05 was edited by Dr. Muireann McMahon, includes an IDI President's address by Kim Mackenzie-Doyle on whydesign.ie and #balancebydesign etc. Issue 05 has articles by Alan Grincell, Dr. PJ White, Tracey Dalton, Hilary Dempsey, Dennis Cheatham, Richard Hudson-Miles and many others.

There are articles on Experience Design, a user centered study of older adults and ATMs, the importance of introspective conceptual design, 90 years of Philips Design, theories on how undergraduate designers learn,  and much much more. 

These and other articles offer different, often contrasting, views on the shifting shapes of designers now and into the future…. I hope these articles start conversations, cultivate dissent and agreement, and provoke reactions of all types…
