Deem Journal Issue 1 (Designing for Dignity) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Issue One uses Adrienne Maree Brown’s Emergent Strategy as a framework for reassessing our relationships to design and to change. Through positioning design as a social practice, dignity becomes our lens for considering various global perspectives on co-living, architecture, and hyperlocal food systems. An interdisciplinary and multigenerational group of contributors lend their points of view on what “Designing for Dignity” might mean.
Deem Journal is a biannual print publication and online platform focused on design as social practice. Our beliefs: Design is the process of adding value, design is a fundamental shared experience and design is everywhere. Our intentions: Explore human-centric design frameworks independent of exclusive institutions and industry categories, ask what design can do for communities by creating conversations that are transdisciplinary and intergenerational, seek to uncover meaningful narratives, connections, and patterns that might help us better understand our histories and imagine our futures. Deem Journal is available on loremnotipsum.com.
