- communication design [journal]
A timely double issue of CD [journal] comprised of 22 articles, reviews and visual essays that illuminate themes from the Montréal Design Declaration including cultural identity, measuring design impact and creating models of design education. “Communication design research clearly has much to contribute to providing new insights to address bigger global, economic, social, cultural and environmental concerns.”
