Contemporary Critical Design – Design Thinking and Practice is a creative compendium issued as a point of research that leads up to the final year project as well as dissertation topic. The purpose of the compendium is to serve as a repository of information to gain groundwork knowledge of what is needed to understand of the key concepts at hand before further academic, visual and artistic research should be made. 

In this version of the creative compendium, information about design groups or collectives that has an emphasis on Critical Design is gathered and compounded into this editorial.
