9780321897411: Critiqued: Inside the Minds of 23 Leaders in Design

FOREWORD BY ELLEN LUPTON

Critiqued takes you on a journey with designer Christina Beard through an iterative design experiment. With her poster in tow, she meets with leading designers, writers, and curators. At each stop, the participant critiques the poster and talks about his or her own design process. Based on their conversation, Christina redesigns the poster before heading to the next critique — a process similar to the children’s game telephone.

This book is not about learning new software or being told how to do something — it’s about exploring and discovering an approach to design that works for you.

The experiment is presented as part memoir and part interview and gives readers insight into each designer’s process and personality. Each chapter features a design prompt for readers to explore 23 distinct approaches in design and to compare multiple perspectives.

Review:

 "The 10 Best Design Books of 2013"
Fast Company
"The project went on and on for a year, until Beard had designed 25 posters, all conveying the same message--Wash Your Hands--in magnificently varied ways."

Fast Company
“Designers, educators, and students will have much to learn from Beard’s brave quest,as they witness an initial idea twist, turn, and transform in response to fresh waves of input from some of design’s most fascinating personalities.”
Ellen Lupton
("For her first book, Critiqued: Inside the Minds of 23 Leaders in Design, she subjected her work--a poster advocating hygiene--to the discerning eye of nearly two dozen leaders in the field."

Core 77
"The results are very interesting and the book provides insight into not only the design process, but just how subjective design really is."
Designers Review of Books

Communication Arts magazine
"For young designers, Critiqued shows what art direction is all about, and seasoned pros will recognize the variety of smart choices required in a field where there is no one perfect solution."
