Exposed-spine binding. Publisher's description: Most design books focus on outcome rather than on process. Scott Stowell's Design for People is groundbreaking in its approach to design literature. Focusing on 12 design projects by Stowell's design firm, Open, the volume offers a sort of oral history as told by those involved with each project -- designers, clients, interns, collaborators and those who interact with the finished product on a daily basis. In addition to the case studies, the book features texts from influential figures in the design world, including Alice Twemlow, chair and cofounder of the School of Visual Arts' MFA Design Criticism program; plus contributions from Pierre Bernard, revolutionary French graphic artist and designer; Charles Harrison, pioneering industrial designer; Maria Kalman, artist and designer; Emily Pilloton, design activist and author of Design Revolution; Michael Van Valkenburgh, landscape architect and professor at Harvard's Graduate School of Design; and Alissa Walker, design writer and urban advocate.
