This book introduces practices that are now part of what people see as ‘21st Century Skills’. The enjoyable essays in this book provide a panoramic view over the subject of design. The essays are written to encourage designers and students of design to reflect upon their field. Fundamental questions are raised about the nature of design, about designers themselves, and about the role of design within the broader contexts of business and society.
And design, these days, is not just for designers - many different fields are learning from design to build creative practices, and this book seeks to help to open up design practices for general use. The book is for designers (to help them reflect on their practices, and develop them further) and for students of design across all designing disciplines.
