ITERATIONS Issue-02

We continue from the success of Dr. Adam de Eyto’s work in initiating and launching this publication in June of this year. Quite simply, it’s a very exciting time to be a design researcher and practitioner in Ireland. Irish Design 2015 has assisted many fantastic initiatives that have ignited this excitement.

It is important to view this publication as an evolving design project itself; with every edition growing ideas, framing and re-framing thoughts, diverging and converging. When we shape what we perceive as a typical edition of Iterations, then, hopefully we can disrupt, subvert, and move into unexpected spaces constructing new platforms to disseminate and grow ideas.

We aim to act in an inclusive manner and maintain a sense of community and collegiality between academic institutes, students and our design peers. It is important to encourage and give confidence to up and coming design researchers to write and disseminate, visualise, design, make and produce.
