The Message journal is a peer-reviewed academic journal that consists of blind reviewed academic papers and occasional commissioned essays. It is dedicated to the development and discussion of contemporary and historical visual communication research, particularly with an emphasis on Graphic Communication Design practice, outputs and artefacts.
The aim of the Message journal is to explore and challenge the boundaries of visual communication within art and design through an experimental and developmental ethos, challenging the practitioner, the development and use of technology, as well as questioning visual communication values such as social, ethical and sustainable practices.
The journal was established by founding members of the Message research group at the University of Plymouth. We are now also very happy to announce, the co-editorship of the journal has been expanded to include colleagues Åse Huus and Dóra Ísleifsdóttir, from the University of Bergen.
