9781938922855: Design for People: Stories About How (and Why) We All Can Work Together to Make Things Better

Most design books focus on outcome rather than on process. Scott Stowell's Design for People is groundbreaking in its approach to design literature. Focusing on 12 design projects by Stowell's design firm, Open, the volume offers a sort of oral history as told by those involved with each project--designers, clients, interns, collaborators and those who interact with the finished product on a daily basis.
In addition to the case studies, the book features texts from influential figures in the design world, including writer Karrie Jacobs, founding editor-in-chief of Dwell magazine; plus contributions from Pierre Bernard, revolutionary French graphic artist and designer; Charles Harrison, pioneering industrial designer; Maira Kalman, artist and writer; Wynton Marsalis, composer and musician; Emily Pilloton, design activist and author of Design Revolution; and Alissa Walker, design writer and urban advocate.

From the Author:

Scott Stowell:Every design project brings people together, including the people who make it and the people who use it. In this book, you'll hear the stories behind 12 of those projects from lots of those people, including me.

From the Back Cover:

Jennifer Daniel, The New York Times:A huge part of my design education was ripping off Scott Stowell. Ten years later, I can't promise I won't shoplift his book.
Scott Doorley + Scott Witthoft, Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford:Candid, mischevious, and witty, Design for People is a great work about creating great work. The glossary alone is worth it.
Jason Santa Maria, A Book Apart + Vox Media:Clear a space on your bookshelf. Design for People by Scott Stowell (and a cast of hundreds) is absolutely spectacular.
