Design and Culture logo

This is the age of design. Even as recognition of its social, economic and cultural force grows, however, the design field's largely unseen “edges” are increasingly becoming its driving forces.

Design and Culture examines these developments, looking for rigorous and innovative critical frameworks to explore “design” as a cultural phenomenon today. As a forum for critique, the journal features a substantial reviews section in each issue. Moreover, in-depth essays analyze contemporary design, as well as its discourse and representations. Covering a field that is increasingly interdisciplinary, Design and Culture probes design's relation to other academic disciplines, including marketing, management, cultural studies, anthropology, material culture, geography, visual culture, and political economy.
