Teal Triggs is the guest editor of this themed issue (This is two-year appointment as guest editor for Teal Triggs): Communication design and public spaces: facing the future: postgraduate research in communication design.
In what ways has communication design impacted individual or collective behaviour and activities within public spaces? How is the space itself transformed by communication design? This call for papers theme acknowledges the broader role that communication design plays in the way public spaces are defined, designed and managed. Areas for exploration may include - though not exclusively - design against crime, counter-terrorism, regeneration, emergency services and health and well-being.
Papers might address the ways in which communication design has fostered democratic approaches to shaping the use of public spaces. Consideration might be given to the role of new communication technologies, and the resulting media-rich environments. How might these be improving lives or opening up new opportunities for those who inhabit and use public spaces? Similarly, how has communication design been successful or unsuccessful in negotiating cultural traditions, political priorities, and community values and history?
