The time has come in which graphic designers are playing an important role in rendering ever more complicated information transparent and understandable for a wider audience. To stress this urgency, Renate Boere dove head first in the world of project management lingo, confidentiality statements, copyright, complicated rights contracts, the search for stakeholders and grand applications. This journey has resulted in the journalistic novel Beyond Design. This designer's novel provides insights into the contemporary, often hybrid, practice of the multi-talented graphic designers. The story tells how Boere decides to take matters into her own hands by working on socially relevant design projects. An exciting and informative book that gives insights into the designer's do's and don'ts while working on projects from start to finish.

"Chanel, Alaa̐, Courrg̈es, Pucci, Kenzo, and Missoni . . . but also Yves Saint Laurent, Manolo Blahnik, Franca Sozzani, and Christian Louboutin. From France to Italy, from the UK to Morocco, with stops in the Egyptian desert and the Aegean islands, we are invited on a private visit to the remarkable homes of couturiers, stylists, muses, and fashion personalities. Far from the pressure of the catwalk and atelier, Terestchenko shows the dčor, the works of art, and the personal collections of these highly talented designers. Some interiors, such as Chanel's apartment at 31, rue Cambon, are mythic, while others like those of Victoire de Castellane, the designer of Dior's jewelry line, or Vanessa Seward, the designer of Azzaro, are completely unconventional. Minimal (Nicole Farhi), exotic (Franca Sozanni), and deceptively simple (Loulou de La Falaise) Beyond Chic is for anyone who loves fashion, interiors, and design"--

Design History Beyond the Canon subverts hierarchies of taste which have dominated traditional narratives of design history. The book explores a diverse selection of objects, spaces and media, ranging from high design to mass-produced and mass-marketed objects, as well as counter-cultural and sub-cultural material. The authors' research highlights the often marginalised role of gender and racial identity in the production and consumption of design, the politics which underpins design practice and the role of designed objects as pathways of nostalgia and cultural memory. While focused primarily on North American examples from the early 20th century onwards, this collection also features essays examining European and Soviet design history, as well as the influence of Asia and Africa on Western design practice. The book is organised in three thematic sections: Consumers, Intermediaries and Designers. The first section analyses a range of designed objects and spaces through the experiences and perspectives of users. The second section considers intermediaries from both technology and cultural industries, as well as the hidden labour within the design process itself. The final section focuses on designers from multiple design disciplines including high fashion, industrial design, interior design, graphic design and design history pedagogy. The essays in all three sections utilise different research methods and a wide range of theoretical approaches, including feminist theory, critical race theory, spatial theory, material culture studies, science and technology studies and art history. Design History Beyond the Canon brings together the most recent research which stretches beyond the traditional canon and looks to interdisciplinary methodologies to better understand the practice and consumption of design.
