The Shape of Design

Frank Chimero wants to write a book about the why of design and he’d like you to help fund it on Kickstarter. I dropped some cash and I think you should too. Some of Frank’s words:

The Shape of Design isn’t going to be a text book. The project will be focused on Why instead of How. We have enough How; it’s time for a thoughtful analysis of our practice and its characteristics so we can better practice our craft. After reading the book, I want you to look at what you do in a whole new light. Design is more than working for clients.

But really, this book aims to look at the mindset and worldview that designing develops in order to answer one big, important question: How can we make things that help all of us live better?
