Existing guidance for communicating design research projects commonly focusses on specific communication instance types such as journal paper writing. However, the diversity of design research endeavours and the variety of communication situations within each such project requires broader and more adaptable guidance. This study therefore proposes a use-case agnostic framework for the communication of DSR. The design of this framework was continuously evaluated and refined by using it in University lectures. It guides design researchers by helping them characterize specific communication situations, based on which an informed communication design process can be formulated.
