This issue of CUBIC Journal continues exploring what we find an extremely important and complex topic. We sought diverse contributions from a wide range of design sectors and aimed at presenting contributions that reposition design and design research through considering gender dynamics. And just like the conference, the journal issue call for papers was named to reflect how the smallest aspects in design have the greatest influence and are often side-lined by ignorance, oversight, or intention (‘The GREAT small’). We added three overlapping and often complimentary concepts to express our interest in the ‘Other’, i.e. the ‘Different’ and the ‘Willful’ (sic).
