Iridescent: Icograda Journal of Design Research has launched the first Issue of Volume 2 online.  The issue is comprised of six papers by design scholars on themes exploring communication design education, sustainability and design, and communication design in public spaces.

Teal Triggs, Iridescent Supervising Editor for the 2011-2013 term, is overseeing the journal's activities and developing its alignment with international research standards.  "Whilst each paper in this Issue establishes a different perspective to exploring ways in which the role of the designer-researcher might be defined," Teal observes, "they all share a sense of urgency and need to promote new, innovative methods and pedagogical approaches for communication design research."

Volume 2 has compelling themes slated throughout 2013.  In addition, Iridescent has partnered with the Global Interaction in Design Conference (GLIDE12), and AIGA's Geo/graphics: Design, Education and the Transnational Terrain to produce special themed issues arising from the conference proceedings.

Iridescent is a peer reviewed, open-access journal, with an international Advisory Board lending its expertise to the review process.  The journal continues to accept manuscripts to its permanent themes exploring sustainability, design education and defining the value of design.
