Book Description

Oct. 11 2011 NONE

Design, Creativity, and Culture: An Orientation to Design is unique in offering a fresh and innovative approach to assessing the cross-cultural, multidisciplinary nature of design. This book is objective and free from overt bias. It references design history, design process, cultural studies, media studies, visual culture, political culture, and information technologies. It is inclusive, making reference to the full spectrum of design disciplines, providing examples from architecture, interior, product, graphic and fashion design, from a variety of cultures.

Design, Creativity, and Culture provides examples and illustrations from a wide range of recognized topics from the Big Bang to The Matrix, cave wall drawings to Twitter and modernism to mass culture. Design, Creativity and Culture is an inclusive, cross-cultural study of design that will make readers question design and culture.

Format:Paperback
There are plenty of discipline specific deign history books out there but this is the first one that I've come across to deal with design as a discipline in itself. Well researched and scholarly but very accessible. Well done!

Format:Paperback
Maurice Barnwell was the best professor I ever had at Glendon College University. The stuff contained in this book seems to have been pulled from his highly engaging lectures in his course, "Design In Society." Its availability in print form is welcome and LONG overdue.
