Become a Member of the DRS
DRS members have access to a wide range of opportunities to engage with and contribute to the design research community: from posting and connecting with others on our online platform, joining special interest groups (SIGs), and accessing DRS publications and archives, to attending conferences and other events (at a discounted rate).
The DRS relies on member support to continue its work in creating, maintaining, and sustaining vital infrastructures, resources, and platforms that can support and grow design research as a discipline. Through member support, the DRS is able to maintain an open-access digital library, run initiatives that provide material support for design researchers at all career stages (including support for PhD students), provide a professional level of communication and community outreach (such as our popular newsletter), and more. This in turn can expand possibilities for thriving careers in design research.
Become a member of the DRS today to join an international community in co-creating the future of design research.
