    In this open issue of The Design Journal a connecting strand between our international authors is concern for how design process(es) can be enhanced. They share an interest in where and with whom design can learn, and the degree to which interactions can be enriched to improve the wellbeing of our communities, be they in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Sweden, United Kingdom or the USA.

    Design’s broad spectrum of activities and meaning is encapsulated in this cross-continent conversation with one book review, seven papers and 24 authors detailing their exploratory research journeys. The areas of Advertising, Drama, Ergonomics, Marketing, Men’s Fashion, New Product Development, Product and Service Design are covered. Perhaps what is most revealing, is that above and beyond their subject focus, methods and tools, the collection attests the cultural diversity that perpetuates design as a discipline.
