About The Student Publication

 We’re a student group that publishes journals (get it? “The Student Publication”). TSP is for students, practitioners, and academics alike who are interested in design, culture, and process. With each volume we aim to critically evaluate emerging themes and topics in design practice that influence the way we learn, think and talk about process, practice, and theory.


In Volume 39 “Rebel: Design as a Verb”  we are considering our current crossroads between reection and action. With ‘design thinking’ as the new buzzword in nearly every discipline from business to tech, designers must take steps to usher in new systems that are more inclusive, thoughtful, and responsible. From politics, to nance, to conservation and transportation and housing, how can Design incite action that highlights responsible human ingenuity and beauty?
