Design Transitions book presented in Amsterdam and London
Discover where design practice is today – and where it will take us in the future. Design Transitions presents 42 unique and insightful stories about how design is changing around the world. Twelve countries are represented from the perspectives of three different communities: design agencies, organisations embedding design; and design academics. The book was launched in Amsterdam and London on December 2 and 9, 2013.
“This book looks at contemporary design practices, with a particular emphasis on service/social design and current design thinking, based on profiles of companies and interviews with specialists. One of its many unique aspects is the truly global span that it achieves in terms of its research and analysis. It is also written in an accessible style while embracing a range of issues and developments. Design Transitions is an essential read for all students and practitioners of design.”
Professor Mike Press, Dundee University

Far from being efficient, multitasking actually damages productivity and relationships at work and home. Every designer should read this.
