With the experience and understanding gathered through previous DESIGN conferences the 13th International Design Conference - DESIGN 2014 is organised to present intersection of contemporary research in design. Based on more than 830 reviews programme chairs have selected 214 papers from 313 submitted manuscripts. The research reports published in DESIGN 2014 three volume proceedings, Book of Abstracts and digital media illustrate the many facets of design. It has been said that changes are the only constant of design. These changes are visible in the DESIGN conference proceedings. Changes in product development, methods and tools used in design and manufacturing lead to outcomes that cost less and use fewer materials, demand less energy and human work, all of the time delivering more of the value for the price. Production is becoming vastly more efficient and the cost of labour as a proportion of the total cost of production is diminishing. As a consequence and in opposition to mass production we are witnessing the growth of products designed and manufactured to address individual needs. With this idea in mind partners, developers and customers are coming ever more closely together in order to plan, engineer, manufacture and fulfil the vast range of projects. The progress visible through DESIGN conference papers is apparent but still does not fulfil the needs. Being on the verge of new paradigm of “social production” and “sustainable development” the borders between engineering and design, production and use are fading. Does our understanding of the socio-technical context of design meets the needs? How do we react? Are our methods and tools appropriate to answer new demands? How is it possible to improve design projects and processes? How can we improve the development of products and services? Which competencies, information and communication technologies are needed? What is the impact on the everyday design work? What social and legal issues should be considered? What are the new advances in design theory and research? All this questions have been addressed many times, but we are still seeking for the right answers and new paradigms. The reality of change in technology, environment, demands and expectations is all-too evident. In thirty-three years since the first DESIGN conference took place in Zagreb almost nothing is the same, nothing, but the rationale behind engineering and design. Contemporary design knowledge is a direct answer to demands, albeit sometimes demands are more cost driven than by societal needs. The need to improve our understanding of the socio-technical context of design and to build a holistic view is more evident than ever. DESIGN 2014 conference provides a platform to discuss such questions and extend our theoretical foundations.
