Design matters. Like never before.
Designers create so much of what
we see, what we use and what we experience. In this time of
unprecedented environmental, social and economic crises, designers
can choose what their young profession will be about: either

consumption of design. Through this timely, provocative and
visually engaging book, Berman offers a powerful and hopeful
message for all designers. After all, the future of civilization is
our common design project.

have the right solution to remedy users’ frustrations. Then what happens?

“Be good at what you do and be nice to people.” I know

definitely one of them), this is easier said than done.
