Description Background: Academic work continues to be dominated by the design schema of codex-based forms of scholarly communication, the academic monograph, journal, and research paper.Analysis: This article argues that the rise of the digital medium provides us with a chance to defamiliarize these traditional modes to develop more accessible publications through new uses of both digital and non-digital platforms. The appropriate integration of digital platforms in concert with physical displays and traditional texts is exemplified by work done on two exhibitions at the Bard Graduate Center.Conclusion and implications: Applying a sense of design acuity that thoughtfully develops engaging interactions across a number of different media platforms allows for the creative development of projects that integrate accessible knowledge production with intellectual rigour.
