9780948462658: Design for Society

Although design has become eminently newsworthy among the general public in our society, there is very little understanding to be found of the values and implications that underlie it. Design generates much heat but little light: we live in a world that has much design consciousness, but little design awareness. Nigel Whiteley analyses design's role and status today, and discusses what our obsession with it tells us about our own culture.

Design for Society is not an anti-design book; rather, it is an anti-consumerist-design book, in that it reveals what most people would agree are the socially and ecologically unsound values and unsatisfactory implications on which the system of consumerist design is constructed. In so doing, it prepares the ground for a more responsible and just type of design.

From the Back Cover:

Design was the boom industry of the last decade, and it has helped to create the superficially more 'caring' image that currently exists in our society. Yet the newsworthiness of design conceals a disturbing ignorance of the profession's values and ambitions - even among designers themselves. Design generates much heat but little light: we live in a world that has much design consciousness but appallingly little design awareness. Nigel Whiteley analyses design's role within the consumer society, and discusses what our obsession with it tells us about the present state of our own culture. Design for Society is not an anti-design book; rather, it is an anti-consumerist-design book, in that it exposes what most people would agree are the socially and ecologically unsound values on which the system of consumerist design is constructed. The author reviews the implications for design of the Green movement, the growing impact of feminism, and the ideas of 'socially responsible' designers. In so doing, he prepares the ground for a more self-aware and just development of design.

About the Author:

Nigel Whiteley is Head and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Lancaster. He is the author of Pop Design (1987), and co-editor of The Lamp of Memory: Ruskin, Tradition and Architecture (1992).
