Design Behaviors Journal 2021

Call for Papers

UDA Annual Int’l Research Journal 2021

Submit before Monday, April 26

The Design Behaviors journal aims to standardize research methodology and terminology related to the CommunicationDesign discipline.

The design originated from nature/environment, and we understand our existence in nature/environment by how design influences us conscious and unconscious manner. Its power is evidenced by how we know, what we buy, where to go, why we act, and most of all, it shows where we are now and where we are going. Design can describe sustainability or ephemerality based on its function and the message. And we acknowledge its aesthetics and purpose through five senses (sight, touch, taste, smell, and sound). Also, it manifests our feelings and conceptions. Naturally, the design is our entity.

Therefore, design cannot be described as a natural outcome; instead, human activities such as theories and methodologies construct aesthetics and functions. Design is not either art or science; it is a cross-disciplinary ‘Art-science.’ Hence the design discipline has been increasing global educational value in masters and Ph.D. programs. Our profession formulates and unifies design research methodology and terminology with adequate and innovative design research support by selective programs globally. Therefore, the Design Behaviors Journal’s goal is to share innovative and practical research methodologies globally for the design discipline.
