This anthology of mind-teasers explores how design communicates with, rubs itself against, and sometimes stumbles around the "real" world, ranging from bottom-line issues such as designing a corporate identity to the philosophical dimensions of designing for the 21st century. Based on the "Design Issues" column in "Communications Arts", this volume presents design connoisseurs with a four-year selection of the column's most intriguing and provocative issues. An unorthodox mix of 20 contributors ranging from hard-core designers to advertising strategists look at contemporary design in a critical, educational, ethical, historical, social and often humorous context.
