Iridescent
provides a comprehensive resource to educators worldwide and strives to ameliorate and impact design research dedicated to communication design. The journal is an open access platform for all papers published online.

Iridescent, Volume 1 was designed by Fabrica, the Benetton Group's communication research center, based in Treviso, Italy. Omar Vulpinari, Icograda President Elect, supervised a team of Fabrica students to represent the spirit of the journal through the vibrant design. The journal cover was inspired by the Ig Nobel Prize, an American parody of the Nobel Prize, with the intent to spur people’s interest in science, medicine and technology through laughter and fun.

Beijing Kingee Culture Development Co., Ltd sponsored the print production of Iridescent, Volume 1. "The generous sponsorship of these two Icograda members has resulted in a publication that will be a reference for educators internationally," said Vulpinari.
