Article proposals and manuscripts may be submitted by email at Completed articles should run at approximately 2500-3000 words; "opinion pieces" can be shorter, at 1000-2000 words.

Vol. 27, No. 3

Drafts due June 15, 2016

Ad deadline June 15, 2016

Publication date September 2016


The practice of design management and its dedication to thinking holistically about how design fits within an organization—and also about how customers experience its manifestation—have never been more important.

Legal, financial, and supply chain opportunities and challenges? DMI would like to hear about the structural aspects of running a design business today, whether corporate/ in-house or consultancy. We'd also like to know where you find your best support. If you've been in the business for a couple of decades, what changes have you seen? And what needs to change? We will also showcase this year's Design Value Award winners.

Drafts due December 15, 2016

Publication date March 2017


The evolution of intelligent, connected devices is radically reshaping companies and competition. What happens when data and services are as much a part of creating a product as materials and finishes? How will this affect the relationships among formerly siloed departments? How will it affect the brand? How will customer collaboration enter into the picture? What ramifications will these changes have for design management and design leaders?
