Design Next is not a research unit, but it supports research in many ways. It is a hub that brings together UNSW’s various design research streams, advises faculties on how to create a research strategy, and helps launch research in which design plays a significant role. Please contact Design Next for inquiries. 

Design Next has experienced academics and its network has many more. Contact us if you are interested in building a research program for your group. We also have plenty of editorial experience, which is useful when developing publication strategies.

Although Design Next is not a research unit, it will conduct research, specifically in the early stages of the design process. The focus will be on the human side of design to complement UNSW’s research profile, on concept creation, and on the business side of design.

If you are interested in these areas, please contact Design Next.
