Abstract This article discusses some of the challenges and key learnings identified by Yoko Akama in the course of her doctoral research in the field of communication design. In particular the text reflects on the challenges of undertaking practice based research within and through the practice of design, rather than as an exploration about design. A number of tools and methods were used within the study, many of which can be clustered under the heading of visualisation. Through a series of visual mappings, including the arrangment of three dimensional artefacts, Yoko was able to undergo the critical process of sense mapping that is essential within the research process.
