New Online Editor

I'd like to introduce myself as the new Online Editor for the Design Research Society. My name is Isabel Prochner and I'm a design researcher based in Montreal, Canada. I love the sense of community that develops around design research and at DRS events. Together with the DRS communications team, I’m looking forward to fostering this community year-round. My goal is to engage members from across the world and expand existing networks. I also aim to make the DRS website and social media accounts an even more valuable resource for members.

In the coming year, you can expect: regular articles on the DRS website and social media platforms that showcase the exciting work being done by members and happening in design research; enhanced Events and Jobs and Opportunities sections on the website, making them an excellent source for design research announcements; and community engagement activities to keep the DRS online platforms buzzing.
