> Your post prompted me to share a thought that has been recurring as I follow this thread.

> 

> Over the years I've found the on-going discussion about the relationship between design and research interesting. My own experience of a shift from doing design in an industrial context (for industry) to doing design in an academic context (for research) led me recently to use the phrase 'design in the service of research' as a result of my PhD experience and now as I aspire to academic research. Prior to starting a PhD in 2004, I did 'design in the service of industry' as a graphic design practitioner.

> 

> I have found this a useful way to frame a position that identifies the same activity of designing changed by a different context and set of demands. Perhaps this is simply another way of saying 'design for research' but I do think it elevates research rather than placing design on the same level, which is what many who contribute to the debate seem to want to do, especially those who I have observed argue for art practice as research rather than in the service of research. In such cases their identity as an artist is more important than their identity as a researcher. Professional identity is often at the heart of the matter in such cases.

> 

> I'd be interested to know if anyone has used this emphasis – design in the service of research – for differentiating the relationship. I haven't written about this myself, but it seems to be a useful way to explain the dilemma you are trying to deal with. 

> 

> As an aside, in my PhD I listed (and included definitions where possible) for the following variations on the relationship between art, design, practice and research. Some may find this list useful, and it may be worth adding to as a useful resource for list members:

> 

> Practice-led

> Practice-based

> Arts-based

> Art-informed

> Artists-as-researchers

> Creative researchers

> Artistic PhD

> Practice-base PhD

> Arts-based PhD

> Practice through research

> Practice as research

> Research into art and design

> Research through art and design

> Research for art and design

> (Frayling, 1993/4:4)

> Practice Research

> Practice-based research:

> Practice-as-research

> Research-based practice

> Practice through research

> Practice-led research

> Design Research

> Research INTO Design

> Research FOR Design

> Research THROUGH Design

> Research by Design: 

> Design-oriented research and research-oriented design
