...an indispensable resource for everyone in the field.(I.D.)
Bravo! This truly is a remarkable book about one of the most significant design practices of the 21st century. It will push and test your knowledge about the role and the value of design. A must-readif you are serious about redesigning the future.(Clement Mok, Founder, Studio Archetype, and President, American Institute of Graphic Arts)
...this is a book to turn your career inside out with serious examination and reflection.(Book Bytes)
We live in perhaps the most overtly (and, possibly, overly) designed time in human history. Design touches us all, regardless of career, country, or social status. If you want to understand the impact of design on your everyday life, the ways in which design research can make you a more effective creator of designed artifacts, or the ways in which those artifacts can best be brought to consumers, the essays collected in Brenda Laurel's Design Research are a great place to start. Whether you make things, sell things, study things, or use things, Laurel's latest offers a unique and powerful historical, analytical, personal, and practical overview of this vital field.(Warren Spector, Studio Director, Ion Storm)
