Authors: Mimeng Zhang
Abstract: The context of digital transformation has brought new opportunities and challenges to design education. This paper aims to grasp the current research hotspots and theoretical foundations of design narrative and to explore new trends in future development based on the current research hotspots. Using the literature related to design narratives collected in Web of Science as the data source, the scientific bibliometric method to create a scientific knowledge map in terms of the distribution of literature by year of output, author, reference co-citation and keyword clustering, and conduct a visual analysis to sort out the research. The results show that the overall number of literature within the search area is rising, with research hotspots mainly focused on design education, narrative design, serious games, and narrativity.
