What does it mean to be a designer and what does it take to be a good designer? Understanding Design stimulates designers to think about what they do, how they do it and why they aim for a certain effect. The precisely formulated mini essays give insight in the design process and encourage reflection. Topics dealt with include: fundamental questions about the designer's profession, the qualities needed to become a good designer and the role that design plays in the broader context of commerce and society, everything directly related to the experiences and practice of designers.

Understanding Design is used by students worldwide. This edition has been expanded - now with over 170 essays -

updated with the latest design science and completely revised with a new index and an extended bibliography.
