Aimed at students of design studies, design history, cultural studies and sociology, The Culture of Design, offers a unique overview of design practice in contemporary culture and society. Drawing on a range of theoretical perspectives, Julier nevertheless foregrounds the everyday business and professional context in which designers work.

The Culture of Design: establishes `design culture' as a distinct discipline; investigates the interactions of design producers and consumers; includes a series of illustrative case studies; and opens up design and design practice for critical interrogation.
