RADDAR - Design annual review
RADDAR is the first French-Swiss annual journal dedicated to design research, designed by Swiss graphic designers Julien Mercier, Rebecca Metzger and Pauline Piguet. The coexistence of the two languages creates a bridge between French and English-speaking research and enables young and experienced researchers alike to express themselves on themes of interest in design theory.
RADDAR takes its name from an evocatively resonant acronym. Radar is designed to detect and pinpoint object, emitting a beam of waves that bounce back for analysis as a source of new knowledge. The annual review aims to train its antennae on the various complex objects of design, revealing the field’s semantic, visual, and aesthetic wealth as well as its social, political and economic dimensions.
