Icograda announces that, as of 2015, Bloomsbury Publishing will be the publisher of the Journal of Communication Design: Interdisciplinary and Graphic Design Research.

Journal of Communication Design (JCD) was originally launched in 2009 as the online publication Iridescent, with the aim of providing a platform to share ideas and findings between scholars and researchers across different cultures and to facilitate collaboration between the members of the Icograda network.

Edited by an international editorial team, led by Editor Teal Triggs, the new incarnation of the journal will build on the rich groundwork already established. As a full double-blind peer reviewed publication, available in print and online, it will develop and critically examine the emerging discourses in research related to contemporary communication and graphic design practice, education and methods, as well as their history, theory and criticism.

It will feature theoretical, historical and applied research in communication design, exploring both analogue and digital forms.

Areas of emphasis include: craft and critical practice, pedagogy and curriculum development, typography and image-making, book arts and publishing, information visualization and digital spaces, sustainability and social design, politics and popular culture.
