Lecture: Deem Journal (Alice Grandoit, Isabel Flower, Nu Goteh)

Deem is a biannual print journal and online platform focused on design as social practice. Our beliefs: Design is the process of adding value. Design is a fundamental shared experience. Design is everywhere. Our intentions: Explore human-centric design frameworks independent of exclusive institutions and industry categories. Ask what design can do for communities by creating conversations that are transdisciplinary and intergenerational. Seek to uncover meaningful narratives, connections, and patterns that might help us better understand our histories and imagine our futures.
