Synopsis:

What does it mean to be a designer, and what does it take to be a good designer? Understanding Design stimulates designers to think about what they do, how they do it, and why they aim for a certain effect. One hundred seventy precisely formulated mini-essays give insight into the design process and encourage reflection.

He currently is Associate Dean Research and Professor of Design at the University of Technology, Sydney - and Senior Researcher in design at Eindhoven University of Technology.
