nomad is a design and society magazine that considers design as a process capable of shaping the future and catalyzing social developments and individual lifestyles. The goal of this semester is to change the perspective with which we look at design and change its status from something extraordinary to a more common concept, which can be appreciated with greater simplicity and naturalness.
Its pages explore not only the final results of the design processes and the designers themselves, but also the effects and future potential of design culture for individuals and society as a whole, within the framework of a broader understanding of the design itself.
In this way, nomad seeks to take on new positions by offering different points of view: personal and economic, cultural and global.
