Accurate communication is obviously important in all aspects of life, but especially so in design. At every stage of the process, from research to concept generation, through design development to proposed solutions, production and testing, complex issues need to be communicated to a wide range of people coming from a range of different backgrounds, all with their own terminology, perspectives and agendas. The potential for miscommunication is huge.
In his editorial It’s the Way I tell them, editor Paul Atkinson describes how the articles in this issue all touch on, in one way or another, this issue of communication. The issue also include six articles and a book review.
