What is Design Today?

Front Cover
Harry N. Abrams, Sep 1, 2002 - Design - 144 pages
What does design mean? Dictionaries define 'design' as a sketch or a concept or a process but ignore the common usage that describes what these activities lead to. For those who understand the underfined meaning of this term, 'design' signifies all of the objects that surround us - the clothes we wear, the products we use, the vehicles we ride in, the media that communicate with us graphically - which is what this book is about.
