New Book - The Culture of design

Guy Julier
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.
