Design is one of the most powerful forces in our lives – and it has never been more exciting. At a time when so many aspects of our lives are changing at a relentless speed on an unprecedented scale, design is increasingly seen as a way to help us benefit from the opportunities created by those changes (and to avoid their dangers).

Design is responding to an age of intense economic, political and ecological instability with resourcefulness and creativity. Public interest is soaring as a new generation of designers is using advanced technologies to pursue their political and environmental objectives in increasingly ambitious projects, as well as to reinvent the objects and spaces we use every day.

Alice Rawsthorn, award-winning design critic, demystifies the field, exploring the most dynamic developments in contemporary design and assessing their impact on our lives now and in the future. From book-making to social design, from the craft revival to design’s gender politics, she offers a comprehensive survey of design today.
