“I am grateful that you chose to submit your work to LEUKOS, as your manuscripts truly embody the best of what LEUKOS can be. The work you have published in LEUKOS has been non-traditional in the sense that it has not emphasized scientific research results. Instead, your papers have been about 1) influence of lighting design on marketing communication, 2) application of semiotics in the evaluation of lighting design, 3) interpreting art with light, and 4) tutorial for lighting vertical surfaces. Another journal may have been less receptive to these articles because they do not report results from hypothesis-driven research. But I saw in each of them a particular kind of novelty and timeliness, driven by concepts and theories that you developed and contextualized within applied lighting. I think it has been rewarding for both of us to see how well received all of your articles have been. Your semiotics article is the 2nd most read article published in LEUKOS! There is no doubt that you have contributed to making LEUKOS what is has become.”Kevin Houser, editor of LEUKOS journal 2011-2023
