Design, Creativity, and Culture: An Orientation to Design is an accessible reader on the subject of design, culture and the creative process in society. Design, Creativity, and Culture is unique in offering a fresh and innovative approach to assessing the cross-cultural, multidisciplinary nature of design. It references design history, design process, cultural studies, media studies, visual culture, political culture and information technologies. It is inclusive, making reference to the full spectrum of design disciplines, providing examples from architecture, interior, product, graphic and fashion design, from a variety of cultures. The book provides examples and illustrations from a wide range of topics from the Big Bang to The Matrix, cave wall drawings to Twitter and Modernism to mass culture. Design, Creativity and Culture provides an inclusive, cross-cultural study of design that will make readers question design and culture.
