The Culture of design
SAGE Publications, 2000, 306.470 JUL
The Culture of design is an exploration into the far reaching influence of design on our lives. Combining a history of the development of design in recent years, with a discussion of the design process and the role of the consumer, Guy Julier writes with a strong understanding of the dialectical relationship that exists between the design industry and the society for which it designs. The Book strikes a useful balance between theoretical material and background information, while analyzing in detail the examples it uses - such as the issue of the convergence of design with advertising.
