Entry Description

Current is Emily Carr University’s design research journal: an annual multi platform publication that seeks to showcase the richness and texture of creative practice and research within our institution. A project of the Faculty of Design + Dynamic Media, Current is written, edited, designed, illustrated, and photographed by a collective of faculty, students, staff, and research assistants. Current’s content features interviews, case studies, critical essays, reviews and photo documentation, where researchers are challenged to represent their processes as iterative cycles of research and to skillfully navigate information-led/practice-led methodologies. It functions as a site for design researchers, design academics, students, professional designers, entrepreneurs, and the business community to reflect on contemporary design thinking—products and processes.
