Everyday life seems to be increasingly subsumed by design objects in all of its numerous manifestations. But what is design exactly and what function does it have? DYDKWTDW provides a no-nonsense interpretation to commonplace design (and its failings) in all its creativity and ingenuity. Profusely illustrated, with puzzles, psychological tests and a pull out sticker sheet, DYDKWTDW challenges and provokes an established way of thinking.

This "enlightened" book is produced as a "design object" in its own right, intended to make you think about what to do with the designs you don't know what to do with. Packed with puzzles, anecdotes, commentary, images, visual quotient, and visual psychological tests, Designs You Don't Know What To Do opens the door to a world of fun and imagination for the young-at-heart. --Reviewer
