In this final issue of the year, Editor Paul Chamberlain reflects in his editorial on the long term impacts of the pandemic coupled and the cost of living crisis on health and wellbeing. The economic downturn can increase health inequalities but other studies suggest potential improvements as well. He argues that design researchers are well placed and well equipped to respond creatively to these unexpected challenges; there is an increased need for frugal innovation, and products and services that are simple and affordable yet still offer value to users and consumers. The articles in this issue articles demonstrate new thinking in how we might do things differently set against these challenges.
