This essay introduces the special issue of Digital Creativity on Design Fictions. It is an attempt to grapple with the notion of Design Fictions and considers this a ‘speculative turn’ within contemporary design practice. It presents Design Fictions as a cluster of problems, rather than offering a single definition of Design Fictions it outlines their ‘multidimensionality’ to suggests that Design Fictions create a discursive space within which new forms of cultural artefact (futures) might emerge.
