Abstract:

"What can be learned from great designers? How can design improve our lives? In Glimmer, Warren Berger, in collaboration with the internationally celebrated Canadian designer Bruce Mau, revolutionizes our uderstanding of design by showing that this multi-faceted practice is about much more than style. Everything is ripe for reinvention - including how businesses function, children learn, and communities thrive. In this hopeful yet practical book, Berger tallies and explores the deceptively simple principles that steer design's vanguard - 'ask stupid questions,' 'begin anywhere' and 'embrace constraints' - and illustrates how these and other such principles provide the means for transforming a glimmer of possibility into the glow of creation and innovation."--P. 4 of cover.
