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.
