Outcome: Rejected (im.).

Motivation:
The paper was rejected because it did not reference any previous work in the journal. Of course, I did search for such papers, but there were none. If the editorial board keeps rejecting future papers based on this criterion, the paper’s theme will never show up in Design Studies. In addition, such invisibility will dry out further research interest, and this will be detrimental to the entire research community.
