Inflection is a student-run design journal based at the Melbourne School of Design, Melbourne University. Born from a desire to stimulate debate and generate ideas, it advocates the importance of the printed word and the discursive voice of students, academics and professionals. Founded in 2013, Inflection is a home for provocative writing, a place to share ideas and engage with the exciting time we are living in.


Inflection is first and foremost a place to gather and share discourse about the built environment.


Inflection is fundamentally a printed journal. The physicality of the object: its weight, texture and smell all contribute to the experience of the reader.


Inflection asserts that criticality is possible in any mode of expression- written or drawn, prose or poetry.


Inflection will always be themed and encourages a plurality of opinions in every issue. Inflection will publish work from students, professionals, academics and unaffiliated members of the public.


Inflection is rigorous. It exists to make a serious contribution to the field and will always be carefully designed, composed and edited.


The inaugural edition of Inflection will launch in November 2014.
