Welcome to the home of Ligature Journal
Ligature Journal is a proud collaboration between Tiliqua Press, final year students at Billy Blue College of Design, Sydney, and design professionals and thinkers from around the world. All of whom have generously donated their time, skills and insights to bring you thought-provoking publications.
For every issue, a new team of student designers will explore a topic dedicated to the mind, the soul or the body. In every issue, designers and creators from an astonishing range of fields give us their insights on that topic, and share their experiences with us. Each issue is a journey that we are excited to bring to you!
Here you will find information about Ligature Journal, and how and where you can purchase both current and previous issues. There are articles available to read, and a short film to watch. You can follow our blog or register to stay informed about the journal, and the other exciting projects happening over at Tiliqua Press.
LJ04: ‘DISRUPTION’ IS AVAILABLE AT LAST
Disruption by design isn’t a neutral act – it can be a powerful tool for good or bad; a buzz-word, a meaningless cliché; a way of challenging design thinking, or a means to camouflage sloppy thinking. Disruption is taught in design faculties in tertiary institutions around the world; it is the topic of TED talks, books and elevator pitches. It is as easy to dismiss as it is to embrace a superficial understanding of what disruption is, and what it can mean to design and designers.
