Colloquia

Design Incubation hosts 4 public colloquia per academic year at various design institutions. This is an opportunity for communication design academics and professional designers to present research, creative projects and practice, and receive feedback from peers. Titles, abstracts, and presenters names are published and archived on the Design Incubation website for reference.

Presenters are design faculty, graduate students and practicing designers. Remote presentations via Skype/Google Hangouts are welcome. Presentations are limited to 6 minutes preferably Pecha Kucha style.

Colloquia Abstract Submissions

Visit our online form to submit an abstract for peer review.

We invite proposals on topics relevant to communication design research. We seek the presentation of unique, groundbreaking, significant creative work, practice of design, case studies, contemporary practice and the academic and scholarly review of creative projects. We also consider new approaches to design education and pedagogy.
