WiD-KC Journal: RISE

September 4, 2014 in News by admin

Women in Design Kansas City is proud to announce that it will publish its first issue of RISE in Spring of 2015!

This first issue of the Women in Design Journal: RISE will be focused on The Contest of Meaning. As design projects increase in complexity and impact, the insight to properly identify and coordinate challenges and solutions becomes highly necessary. As windows of opportunity multiply and expand for professionals in the design fields, the ability to manage time, identity, and personal enrichment becomes more and more important. As management responsibilities or company size grow, communication hierarchy and office culture require more organizational definition. A contest of meaning exists in every design task and career-life decision – the first issue of RISE aims to discuss and elaborate on methods of approaching and handling the inescapable dilemmas of precedence and selection in an age of creative abundance and possibility.

How does one decide what is most meaningful…and to whom?

How do I make a submission?

·         To submit an idea for a paper, please send the following:

·         A 2 – 4 paragraph abstract explaining how your paper fits the ”Contest of Meaning”theme

A 1 – 2 paragraph biography including education and work experience

·         A list of previously published articles (if applicable)
