Temes de Disseny was created in 1986 as a channel for communication and reflection among students, professionals and researchers involved in the culture of design. The 34th edition, published in 2018, represents a turning point in the publication, being transformed into an open-access scientific journal. This new format not only plans to remain as a point of reference in the field of design and a bridge between the local and international strategic framework, but also aims to be a reference within the scientific communities of other disciplines.

The publication also has the purpose to strengthen design as a research discipline that merits attaining the same value as any other discipline to become an area and a field of knowledge. A special emphasis has been placed in including research through design due to its great potential as an integrating agent amongst disciplines.

Temes de Disseny addresses current social, environmental and economic challenges for design and engineering, with scientific rigor along with appealing graphics, which are both the core of Elisava’s publications. In the upcoming weeks, we will announce some news about Temes de Disseny. Stay tuned!
