Research in the School of Design seeks to explore what design is and what it might become. We work across disciplines to better understand where design ideas sit within the context of the world around us and how to design excellence into our lives. With projects spanning practical and theoretical enquiries, we use action research to interpret environmental and social change and the mechanics and ethics of the telling of stories. We have a global reputation for using the moving image and digital technologies as research tools and a growing profile in the exploration of material production, rooted in our history of creativity in craft.
