The first mainstream book to explore how the problem-solving, creative and insightful powers of Bruce Mau and the world's other great designers can be applied to our everyday lives and businesses -- and spawn creative epiphanies around the world.
What can be learned from great designers? How can design improve our lives? Answers abound in Glimmer. In the cutting-edge studios of Canadian design phenomenon Bruce Mau and other visionary designers, everything is ripe for reinvention -- including how businesses function, children learn and communities thrive. Warren Berger, with the full cooperation of Mau, tallies and explores the deceptively simple principles that steer design's vanguard -- "ask stupid questions," "begin anywhere" and "make hope visible" -- and illustrates how these and other such principles can provide the means for finding hope in these anxious times.
