The history and controversial roots of the social design movement, explored through the life and work of its leading pioneer, Victor Papanek. In Victor Papanek: Designer for the Real World, Alison Clarke explores the social design movement through the life of its leading pioneer, the Austrian American designer, theorist, and activist Victor Papanek. Papanek's 1971 best seller, Design for the Real World: Human Ecology and Social Change has been translated into twenty-two languages and never fallen out of print. Its politics of social design, anti-corporatism, and environmental sustainability have found renewed pertinence in the twenty-first century and dominate the agendas of design schools today. Drawing extensively on previously unexplored archival sources, Clarke uncovers and contextualizes the movement's controversial origins and contradictions.

In this incessantly readable, groundbreaking work, Vincente makes vividly clear how we can bridge the widening gap between people and technology. He investigates every level of human activity - from simple matters such as our hand-eye coordination to complex human systems such as government regulatory agencies, and why businesses would benefit from making consumer goods easier to use. He shows us why we all have a vital stake in reforming the aviation industry, the health industry, and the way we live day-to-day with technology.

An exploration of how design might be led by marginalized communities, dismantle structural inequality, and advance collective liberation and ecological survival. What is the relationship between design, power, and social justice? “Design justice” is an approach to design that is led by marginalized communities and that aims expilcitly to challenge, rather than reproduce, structural inequalities. It has emerged from a growing community of designers in various fields who work closely with social movements and community-based organizations around the world. This book explores the theory and practice of design justice, demonstrates how universalist design principles and practices erase certain groups of people—specifically, those who are intersectionally disadvantaged or multiply burdened under the matrix of domination (white supremacist heteropatriarchy, ableism, capitalism, and settler colonialism)—and invites readers to “build a better world, a world where many worlds fit; linked worlds of collective liberation and ecological sustainability.” Along the way, the book documents a multitude of real-world community-led design practices, each grounded in a particular social movement. Design Justice goes beyond recent calls for design for good, user-centered design, and employment diversity in the technology and design professions; it connects design to larger struggles for collective liberation and ecological survival.

Are you a learning and development professional responsible for creating training programs for your organization? If so, you probably know that every training project faces the constraints of time, cost, and quality. Real World Training Design employs the time-tested ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation) model as a starting point in giving you the tools and knowledge you need to implement your training goals. In Real World Training Design, you will learn how to assess the needs training of your company, how to design a program that meets your criteria you face, how to develop the program efficiently and cost-effectively, how to implement your training protocol, and how to evaluate the results of your work so you can demonstrate the benefits and return-on-investment of your plan. Separating Real World Training Design from the rest of the training manual pack is its recognition that real-world challenges and opportunities are part of the process of developing every training program. Rather than gloss over the potential difficulties faced by trainers, managers, and other L&D staff, this book explores and addresses these issues head on, and offers creative and pragmatic advice on how to overcome these obstacles. In addition to an in-depth analysis of the ADDIE protocol and coverage of the potential pitfalls you may encounter, Real World Training Design also delivers useful tools, detailed templates, well-researched case studies, and a list of additional resources to help you create truly productive and cost-effective training programs. Real World Training Design is a tremendously valuable for every professional who is involved with the design, implementation, maintenance, and evaluation of personnel development tools.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • At last, a book that shows you how to build—design—a life you can thrive in, at any age or stage • “Life has questions. They have answers.” —The New York Times Designers create worlds and solve problems using design thinking. Look around your office or home—at the tablet or smartphone you may be holding or the chair you are sitting in. Everything in our lives was designed by someone. And every design starts with a problem that a designer or team of designers seeks to solve. In this book, Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show us how design thinking can help us create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are. The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and build your career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise.
