About the Design Research Group

Our group encompasses the disciplines of fashion design, graphic design and interior design, and is a place for staff and PhD researchers to explore the nature and definitions of design research, and the ways our practices can be framed and contextualised.

We have weekly meetings to drive our agenda and desire to be an outward facing group with a supportive atmosphere. Individuals are encouraged in their own research and to develop cross-disciplinary projects.

Our current aims include developing a programme of visiting speakers, group exhibitions and symposia.
