"Do Good Design will now proudly be in the library of the Bauhaus." --Dr. Walter Prigge Bauhaus Dessau Foundation "In Yiddish, a mensch is a person of integrity and honor and it seems David Berman fills the bill. His book is lively and humorous and sly too because while it makes you think and adjust your perspective, it includes the reader on several levels. Changing the world for the good never seemed more appealingly possible." --Edward Asner Past President, Screen Actors Guild "Timely, relevant, and necessary. Well done!" --Don Ryun Chang President of Icograda "I believe that the real value of this book does not reside in the plethora of data and information that it contains but rather in the compelling biographical account of the author's passionate journey to discover and advocate how design and designers can contribute to doing good in a fragile world." --Jacques Lange Former President of Icograda (2005-2007) "David Berman, in this lively visual narrative, reveals for us the power of design to drive consumption and some of our unbecoming behavior of recent decades. Yet, more importantly, he speaks of the extraordinary potential to design to change the world, leading human behavior toward our aspirational destinies." --Richard Grefe Executive director, AIGA | the professional association for design "...just the right measure of passion and reticence...excellent." --Ken Garland Author, First Things First manifesto "A fine read." --Steven Rosenberg Past President, Society of Graphic Designers of Canada "I think the book is just great!" --Mervyn Kurlansky Co-founder, Pentagram UK Past-President, Icograda "It should be required reading, not only for all aspiring designers... but even more so for the established stars." --Pete Kercher Founder, EIDD - Design For All Europe
Great design can be an agent of social change. The environmental crisis is the greatest issue of today, and according to author David Berman, consumerism is its largest cause ! often fueled by convincing graphic and product design intended to invent "needs". Alternatively, creative professionals can use their skills to help spread messages and ideas the World really needs to hear, doing good by how we design and how we use design. This book offers a powerful and hopeful message that includes solutions that everyone will want to hear. In this provocative and dramatically-illustrated book, David Berman argues that we live in an age where the democratization of technology offers us each an opportunity to leave a greater legacy by the creative ideas we choose to share rather than the genes we strive to propagate. Indeed, the future of civilization has become our common design project. He believes that communications professionals have more conspicuous power than they realize, and play a core role in helping some corporations mislead audiences in order to invent unfulfilled "needs" in larger and larger markets.In a World where design has become a recognized corporate asset, designers and their clients have the opportunity to use their persuasive skills responsibly and to accelerate awareness.Recent developments regarding professionalism and ethics offer powerful hope that there is great opportunity for designers and other professionals to choose what their still-young profession will be about: creating visual lies to help sell stuff or helping repair the World by bridging knowledge and understanding. Do Good Design is an AIGA Design Press book, published under Peachpit's New Riders imprint in partnership with AIGA. Alle Produktbeschreibungen
