It is a familiar scene. Each September brings its new crop of would-be graphic designers, diverse in their experiences and ambitions, brought together in the lecture theatre by an appointment on their induction calendar; indicating an introduction to design research.

In this first year of study design research will take place on Wednesdays, regardless of studio projects It will constitute a certain number of lectures and tutorials, concluding with a specified brief which represents the first phase of assessment. As the routine unfolds I sense that my new audience will have already made some judgments on this particular aspect of their course.
