While a good many books have released recently that deal with the ‘how to’ of design, few take a stand against ramifications of certain design practice on consumption. David Berman, a Canadian communication designer, strikes against branding in his new book Do Good Design. His thought is that rather than produce more to entice further spending, we should be designing our way out of the cycle.
Good points, and the book received a strong review from DesignBoom (4 out of 5). You can read the review here.
