Emily Carr Launches Current as an e-publication
Faculty members Celeste Martin and Deborah Shackleton, working with third year design majors, have developed and designed two ebook apps distributed through the App Store. These apps are free and can be downloaded from the App Store under the category of Education. Current 02 and Current 03 features the design and production of Alanna Munro, Janna (Yumi) Simonson, Sabrina Ng, Makiko Umezawa, Kieran Wallace, Amanda Wangen, Hailey Yang, Razia Daudjee, Dylan Yee, Jieun Jane Lee and Tracy Tsui.
Current is a multi platform design journal that showcases creative, practice-based and applied research. It functions as a site for design researchers, design academics, students, professional designers, entrepreneurs, and the business community to reflect on contemporary design thinking—products and processes. Through a variety of forms and formats—interviews, case-studies, critical essays, reviews and photo documentation, we challenge researchers to represent their processes as iterative cycles of research and to skillfully navigate information-led and practice-led methodologies. Print copies are available via email at Current
