After centuries of subaltern and decades of transdisciplinary gestation, decolonial thinkinghas finally been incorporated into studies of materiality and – though belatedly – cohered as a question that can be posed directly both to and within the field of Design Studies. Some of the questions that come to mind in this formative moment for decolonial thinking in/and/as design include:•What does the endeavor of decolonizing design mean?•What does it mean for design to be thought of in relation to decoloniality and for decoloniality to be thought of in relation to design?•How are ideas and practices of decolonizing design already emerging?•What are its implications within and beyond the field of Design Studies?These questions have brought us – the members of the Decolonising Design (DD) project and research collective – together and have influenced our efforts to build an online platform that supports and promotes thinking by similarly interested design scholars.
