Design is now one of the world's major industries - from the
rarified world of elite designers creating high-end products and
environments for wealthy consumers to the increasingly pervasive
culture of brand management and mass consumption.The study of
Design involves the analysis of both the form, function and style
of material artefacts and their ideological, aesthetic, political,
cultural, technological and economic contexts. Design: the key
concepts guides the reader through this complex field, carefully
illustrating its arguments with case studies and images.As well as
examining the contemporary world of design, the book also assesses
how design has changed through history, especially since
industrialisation, and how writers, theorists and critics have
influenced the history of design and its practice.Design: the key
concepts presents a provocative, concise and accessible overview
for students coming to Design for the first time.
