DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This book examines how sustainability has the potential to transform both the fashion system and the innovators who work within it. Sustainability is arguably the defining theme of the twenty-first century. The issues in fashion are broad-ranging and include labour abuses, toxic chemicals use and conspicuous consumption, giving rise to an undeniable tension between fashion and sustainability. The book is organized in three parts. The first part is concerned with transforming fashion products across the garment's lifecycle and includes innovation in materials, manufacture, distribution, use and re-use. The second part looks at ideas that are transforming the fashion system at root into something more sustainable, including new business models that reduce material throughput. The third section is concerned with transforming the role of fashion designers and looks to examples where the designer changes from a stylist or creator into a communicator, activist or facilitator.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills. In a hectic business environment where it is estimated that half of the decisions that CEOs make turn out to be wrong, the stark reality is that it has never been harder to see what's happening around us, interpret information efficiently, and develop strategies that are executed in a successful way. This is partly down to the speed of change and also down to the mindset about change that is common amongst large and small companies. To them, change is seen as the enemy. This book proposes a role reversal and gives people a brand new methodology as a practical guide in how to use change as a fuelling mechanism to generate outstanding business success. We all accept that change is the only constant, yet the author believes there is a significant lack of insight into how to think and act in a way that capitalizes on a constantly changing environment. Powered by Change requires leaders to adopt a more radical view about the way business is done. The Windmill is constructed using four blades: Purpose, People, Product and Process. Getting these four blades to work in harmony with one another leads to an empowered business that can use the winds of change to fuel business success. Powered by Change is filled with examples and stories from around the world, including global corporates and start-up ventures, alongside colorful insights and above all, actionable steps to take to achieve competitive advantage. Key topics include change, innovation, leadership, strategy and futureproofing.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Design impacts every part of our lives. The design of products and services influences the way we go about our daily activities and it is hard to imagine any activity in our daily lives that is not dependent on design in some capacity. Clothing, mobile phones, computers, cars, tools and kitchenware all enable and hold in place everyday practices. Despite design’s omnipresence, the understanding of how design may facilitate desirable behaviours is still fragmented, with limited frameworks and examples of how design can effect change in professional and public contexts. This text presents an overview of current approaches dedicated to understanding how design may be used intentionally to make changes to improve a range of problematic social and environmental issues. It offers a cross-disciplinary and cross-sectoral overview of different academic theories adopted and applied to design for behaviour change. The aim of the volume is twofold: firstly, to provide an overview of existing design models that integrate theories of change from differing scientific backgrounds; secondly, to offer an overview of application of key design for behaviour change approaches as used across case studies in different sectors, such as design for health and wellbeing, sustainability, safety, design against crime and social design. Design for Behaviour Change will appeal to designers, design students and practitioners of behavioural change.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Massive Change is a modern illustrated primer on the new inventions, technologies, and events that are affecting the human race worldwide. The book is a part of a broader research project by Bruce Mau Design intended to provoke debate and discussion about the familiar objects and techniques that are transforming our lives. In essays, interviews, and provocative imagery aimed at a broad audience, Massive Change explores the changing force of design in the contemporary world, and in doing so expands the definition of design to include the built environment, transportation technologies, revolutionary materials, energy and information systems, and living organisms. The book is divided into 11 heavily illustrated sections covering major areas of change in contemporary society - such as urbanism and architecture, the military, health and living, and wealth and politics. introductory essay, extended captions, and interviews with leading thinkers, including engineers, designers, philosophers, scientists, architects, artists, and writers. Concluding the book is a graphic timeline of significant inventions and world events from 10,000 B.C. to the present. Massive Change is the umbrella name for wide-ranging research project initiated by Bruce Mau Design and the Institute Without Boundaries, a new post-graduate design program headquartered at his studio. The project will include not only this book but also a travelling exhibition, public events, an on-line forum, a documentary television project, posters, and a product line. The overall aim of the project is to explore the changing force of design in the contemporary world. The book focuses on the powerful, newly designed technologies and systems (and the failure of outmoded ones) that increasingly influence our daily lives. the debate about genetically modified foods, the race to decode human the human genome, the development and worldwide trafficking of sophisticated military weapons - even the increasingly intrusive security systems at airports: all are examples of massive changes that involve the field of design. The book presents images and text that explore the impact of these subjects, both the seemingly mundane as well as the mind-boggling and microscopic. As the text in Massive Change explains: No longer associated simply with objects and appearances, design is increasingly understood in a much wider sense as the human capacity to plan and produce desired outcomes. The book is divided into 11 sections, each focusing on a specific economy at work in the world today, both the traditional (such as manufacturing), and the often-invisible (globalization and politics). The pages combine images, extended captions, general essays, and interviews in a clean, simple design. The imagery in Massive Change is irresistible, and stands alone as a compelling reason to own this book. beautiful. For example, a photo of a smoky blue blob, as the caption explains, is really Aerogel, a material developed by NASA to collect fast-moving space dust. And a featherless, naked chicken staring at us from the page is just that: a new, genetically engineered broiler that requires no plucking and yields more meat, a boon to poultry producers yet a frightening harbinger of our future food supply. Massive Change is a well designed, intelligent, visually provocative exploration of the myriad subjects percolating through popular culture: those we read about in magazines and on Web sites but rarely understand in any meaningful way. It poses the question: Now that the human race can do almost anything, what will we do next?

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The result of extensive international research with multinationals, governments, and non-profits, Design Thinking at Work explores the challenges organizations face when developing creative strategies to innovate and solve problems. Noting how many organizations have embraced "design thinking" as a fresh approach to a fundamental problem, author David Dunne explores in this book how this approach can be applied in practice. Design thinkers constantly run headlong into challenges in bureaucratic and hostile cultures. Through compelling examples and stories from the field, Dunne explains the challenges they face, how the best organizations, including Procter & Gamble and the Australian Tax Office, are dealing with these challenges, and what lessons can be distilled from their experiences. Essential reading for anyone interested in how design works in the real world, Design Thinking at Work challenges many of the wild claims that have been made for design thinking, while offering a way forward.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Design for Sustainable Change explores how design thinking and design-led entrepreneurship can address the issue of sustainability. It discusses the ways in which design thinking is evolving and being applied to a much wider spectrum of social and environmental issues, beyond its traditional professional territory. The result is designers themselves evolving, and developing greater design mindfulness in relation to what they do and how they do it. This book looks at design thinking as a methodology which, by its nature, considers issues of sustainability, but which does not necessarily seek to define itself in those terms. It explores the gradual extension of this methodology into the larger marketplace and the commercial and social implications of such an extension.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Blue Dunes chronicles a proposal for the development of barrier islands designed to protect the New York metropolitan region in the face of storm surges and rising tides. It is a narration of the complex research agenda of an unlikely team of scientists, actuarists, engineers, ecologists, and designers addressing climate change within the practical limitations of politics and economics. Led by the firms WXY Studio and West 8, Blue Dunes challenges the existing convention of small-scale, piecemeal interventions by promoting more regional concepts, in this case developing a series of barrier islands stretching from Long Island to New Jersey. The project highlights the real world connections between climate modeling, insurance underwriting, and infrastructure engineering, as mediated by design to advance resilient coastal habitats for natural and human ecologies. Blues Dunes challenges the complacency of overlooking and avoiding "big ideas" in favor of more localized interventions, setting forth an engaging process for future educators and researchers in advancing interdisciplinary work in urban and landscape design, ecology, finance, and risk management.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

How design can change the world. Change is the only constant. In 2020 the world experienced a global pandemic, social inequalities, climate change, racial injustices, riots and unrests, and rapid advances of new technologies. Although many fear change, it is the job of designers to create and thrive in such times. To document our present moment, Gjoko Muratovski invited ten highly influential design figures--including iconic design leaders such as Carole Bilson, Karim Rashid, Bruce Mau, Steven Heller, and Don Norman--to reflect on the current state of affairs. By looking to the past and reflecting on the present, these designers project very personal images of the future that they would like to see. The conversations are broad, covering topics as diverse as beauty, race, and gender to design activism and economic resilience.
