The Royal College of Art Design & Philosophy Society was founded by Valeska Noemi Mangel in 2019 to give designers and creatives a space to debate, read, critically observe and develop a theoretical practice alongside their projects. We believe that design is more than form & function it is responsible for the shaping of our world and being and therefore requires a constant philosophical exchange with our environment and each other. The journal is our contribution to promote reflections and deeper thoughts arising while designing and creating.
In this issue we edited selected pieces around the topic of saviourism in design. It includes poetry, essayistic and theoretical writing as well as a comic analysing the theme from different angles.
