DISCOURSE MOVES FOR DESIGN COMMUNICATION
This ESSENTIAL is designed to Discourse moves help us understand what is going on into larger sections, blocks or pieces of design communication.
Discourse moves apply to spoken or written forms in which we communicate. Many presentations of design work use these moves to structure what is being described and communicated. This may involve a design process or an artifact.
Similarly, writing about design – a master’s term paper of thesis, or in a design-research conference paper article, thesis chapter or thesis overview – make use of such discourse moves.
Broad discourse moves allow us to also see what the many design futures words we use and encounter may be understood to be doing, or performing, in shaping meaning. This can be in describing, explaining or interpreting a piece of design communication.
