Iridescent: Icograda Journal of Design Research publishes Issue 2 of Volume 2 online.  Four papers examine different approaches and purposes of design writing and writing about design history and practice.

The theme, initially proposed by design writer Alice Twemlow, was overseen by Iridescent Supervising Editor Teal Triggs.  "When we began planning this issue over a year ago, we weren’t to know design writing would be taking such a centre stage in the design community," Teal notes.  Citing the recent Design and Culture issue and AIGA Blunt conference as examples, Teal observes that "there appears to be a revitalized interest within the academy in debating the role of graphic design writing, including writing about history, critical writing and the role of writing in research."  Volume 2 Issue 2 of Iridescent is a timely addition to this emerging debate and scholarship on design writing.

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.
