Design can change the world?Jun 11 2015

I love this piece from Jennifer Daniel about self-congratulatory "design can change the world" rhetoric.

Design can change the world. Are you kidding me? Are we having a debate or a therapy session?

Designers will do anything to convince themselves we are not in a service industry. Why are we so desperate to make ourselves feel better? Because we feel GUILTY and we have to reconcile what we do professionally with the world we live in. We WANT to save the world so we repeat our daily affirmations on our way to work...

"Design can change the world."

...on our way to yoga...

"Design can change the world."

This debate as is an attempt to assuage the guilt we already have and know we have because we're here doing THIS instead of something truly meaningful.

Information Graphics: SpaceNov 07 2014

Space Information Graphics

A children's book about space featuring information graphics illustrated by the completely awesome Jennifer Daniel!?

The third in a visually stunning series of information graphics that shows just how interesting and humorous scientific information can be. Complex facts about space are reinterpreted as stylish infographics that astonish, amuse, and inform.

INSTANT PURCHASE. February 2015 cannot come fast enough.
