Design research is alive and well, and living in an increasing number of places. I find encouraging evidence for this in the grwoth of research-based journals in the design world over the last ten to fifteen years. or example, Design Studies was launched in 1979, Design Issues, first appeared in 1984; the Journal of Design History in 1988; Research in Engineering Design in 1989; and Languages of Design in 1992. These are not the only ones; and therehave been others, of course, in other languages, such as Temes de Disseny (Catalan and Spanish), 1986; Revue Sciences et Thechniques de la Conception (French), 1992; FormDiskurs (German), 1996.
