Book review

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 writer Karrie Jacobs, founding editor-in-chief of Dwell magazine; plus contributions from Pierre Bernard, revolutionary French graphic artist and designer; Charles Harrison, pioneering industrial designer; Maira Kalman, artist and writer; Wynton Marsalis, composer and musician; Emily Pilloton, design activist and author of Design Revolution; and Alissa Walker, design writer and urban advocate.
