About us

The Design Futures Lab is an interdisciplinary design research community in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT University, affiliated with the RMIT Design Research Institute.

We share a common interest in exploring a design driven approach to understanding, communicating and realising futures. As practitioner researchers we value the development of ideas, processes and tools as much as we do the creation of design artefacts.

Our research projects span the realm of community and industry based partnerships, and poetic propositions of what is and might be. As researchers and educators we bring our research based learning to our educational programs and through this to the next generation of designers and business leaders.
