Message Journal

Message is a peer-reviewed academic journal that consists of blind reviewed academic papers. It is dedicated to the development and discussion of contemporary Visual Communication research particularly within Art & Design with an emphasis on Practice, Outputs and Artefacts.

The aim of the Message journal is to explore and expand the boundaries of Visual Communication within Art & Design through an experimental and developmental ethos, challenging the practitioner, the development and use of technology, as well as questioning Visual Communication values and social, ethical and sustainable practices.

The Message journal welcomes contributions from national and international Visual Communication researchers and practitioners from a variety of perspectives: theoretical, conceptual, educational and industrial.

The Plymouth University Message journal and research group is committed to enhancing the development of the visual communication subject areas, both in education and commercial design, through research and enterprise.
