Progetto Grafico 28 International Graphic Design Magazine (IT) – Topic: Publishing

Deadline for submissions: 15 January 2015

Progetto grafico 28: Publishing

Edited by Maria Rosaria Digregorio, Silvio Lorusso, Silvia Sfligiotti, Stefano Vittori

By devoting an issue to “Publishing,” which has always been a central theme for people dealing with communication design, Progetto grafico has decided to start by redefining and expanding upon the term, going beyond its primarily editorial connotations to explore its significance as “making public; disclosing; popularizing.” The latter seems to be a core issue for both those who design/produce editorial material (professionally or otherwise) as well as those who use it.

The International Journal of Design Sciences and Technology (http://europia.org/IJDST/) is an independent and open platform for disseminating design knowledge.

It endeavours to provide a framework with which to support debates on different social, economic, political, historical, pedagogical, philosophical, scientific and technological issues surrounding design and their implications for both professional and educational design environments. The focus is on both general as well as specific design issues, at the level of design ideas, experiments and applications.

There is no deadline for submitting a paper. Each accepted paper will be published within four months after completion of the final draft. http://europia.org/IJDST/Instruction.pdf
