IdN (International designers' Network) is an international publication for creative people on a mission to amplify and unify the design community. It is devoted to bringing designers from around the globe together to communicate with, learn from and inspire one another.

IdN Extra is a series of special editions that explore in-depth a particular theme or project.
Red Thread looks inside the Communication Design program at Swinburne University of Technology, one of the premiere programs of its kind internationally. The book focuses on the ground breaking Industry Placement program and the Honours curriculum, two components that make the course one of the most emulated for its excellence in design teaching and practice. Featuring interviews with a group of outstanding young Australian designers who have experienced the program, the book discusses the value of industry exposure in supporting the needs of industry and advancing its stakes. Essays by current staff address the program’s key emphases and its role in supporting designers transition to industry.
