The Design International series is born in 2017 as a cultural place for the sharing of ideas and experiences coming from the different fields of design research, becoming a place in which to discovering the wealth and variety of design, where different hypotheses and different answers have been presented, drawing up a fresh map of research in international design, with a specific focus on Italian design.
Different areas have been investigated through the books edited in these years, and other will be explored in the new proposals.
The Scientific Board, composed by experts in fashion, interior, graphic, communication, product and industrial, service and social innovation design, interaction and emotional design, guarantee the high level of the accepted books.
After the first selection by the Scientific Board, the proposals are submitted to a double review by other international experts.

Anatomy of a puppet Design driven categories for animated puppets’ skin Anatomy of a puppet Design driven categories for animated puppets’ skin
Vincenzo Maselli (319.9)
The history of puppets happens to be the one of human evolution, because puppets have inhabited human religious rites, technological experiments, artistic purposes and have been used as entertainment tools. This volume focuses on a specific typology of puppets, the animated ones, used even today as protagonists of stop-motion films. By engaging an interdisciplinary analysis of animated puppets’ manufacturing processes, this book places a challenge: it merges design and film studies’ methods of analysis and applies criteria of material examination of design objects to investigate puppets’ material aspects.

Time to exhibit. Directing Spatial Design and New Narrative Pathways Time to exhibit. Directing Spatial Design and New Narrative Pathways
Ico Migliore (319.8)
This book offers a key for reinterpreting interior design as a whole, in light of the narrative component of a kind of exhibition design that constantly addresses the measurement of time, which becomes the founding variable to be dealt with on the level of a project. Commenting on the evolution of exhibition design, the volume outlines its future sceneries, arising as an unicum from the perspective of the reflection on the role and the developments of this interior design branch.

Living, Working and Travelling. New Processes of Hybridization for the Spaces of Hospitality and Work Living, Working and Travelling. New Processes of Hybridization for the Spaces of Hospitality and Work
Francesco Scullica, Elena Elgani (319.7)
The focus of this research is mainly on the relationship and the hybridization processes between hospitality spaces (mainly hotels and hostels) and workspaces for knowledge worker (offices, smart-office, co-working, hubs) in the field of interior design.
Ebook
Transmedia Design Framework. Design-Oriented Approach to Transmedia Practice Transmedia Design Framework. Design-Oriented Approach to Transmedia Practice
Mariana Ciancia (319.6)
The book focuses on Transmedia Design, a field of research that allows researchers and practitioners to analyse, develop, and manage multichannel narrative-based communication systems. The work aims to identify the main features of transmedia projects, to build a glossary that can be shared and to present an original framework: a conceptual and operational tool for designing multichannel narrative-based environments.

In the Neighbourhood. Spatial Design and Urban Activation In the Neighbourhood. Spatial Design and Urban Activation
Barbara Camocini, Davide Fassi (319.1)
Neighbourhoods of contemporary cities are ‘hypersensitive’ and ‘fragile’ areas where dismantling and transformation processes generate fragmentation and displacement. Reconstruction and re-occupation of urban spaces guided by residents are becoming increasingly frequent in these places. This book presents some reflections on the role of design discipline in this fertile and proactive context, proposing specific research methodologies and intervention strategies in close relation with the resident population, building new skills, creating original synergies, and new processes of inclusion and social innovation.
