Design & Art
Research Archive

The Design & Art Research Archive is our way of collecting and distributing documents that we hope will further critical discourse and development of the various design disciplines. As designers and artists ourselves, we know that coming across quality material for studies and inspiration can be tricky, time-consuming and potentially legally problematic. We hope this archive is one part of a larger answer, as learning needs to take place both inside, but also outside, of academic contexts.

We are doing this strictly as a sort of community service. To the best of our knowledge:

  1. these documents were openly circulated on the internet
  2. are not under a publisher's copyright claim
  3. and—above all—will do no obvious harm to the original authors by being made accessible from this archive.

Please get in touch if you are an author or publisher whose work appears here and wish that we remove something.
