Design and Designing : A Critical Introduction, Paperback / softback Book

Design and Designing : A Critical Introduction Paperback / softback

Edited by Steve Garner, Christopher, MP Evans

Paperback / softback


Design and Designing provides a broad and critical understanding of what is essentially a practical subject.

Designing today is less a craft and more a part of the knowledge economy.

It's all about knowing how to acquire knowledge and how to apply it creatively. Design and Designing covers the design process, modelling and drawing, working with clients, production and consumption, sustainability, professional practice and design futures.

Chapters are written by expert teachers and practitioners from around the globe, each presenting an accessible and engaging overview of their field of design.

Every chapter is highly illustrated with a combination of images and information boxes, which extend or highlight key material.

Each section concludes with a design project, a hands-on activity for the reader. Design and Designing covers the full spectrum of design types, from graphic communication to product design, from fashion to games design, setting every type in its aesthetic, ethical and social contexts.

With this essential book, readers will learn from today's best practice and best thinking in design, they will develop a critical sense, and become the designers of tomorrow.
