Design _________ a Depression

Image from New York Times

The New York Times recently published a piece “Designing Through a Depression” by Allison Arief that continues the heated debate on the affects of design due to the economic downturn. Below is an excerpt:

Addressing other nations at the G-20 last Wednesday, President Obama suggested that the United States was unlikely to return to its role as a “voracious consumer market.” If Obama’s right — and the experience of Japan, post-recession, suggests he may well be —what might that mean for design?

Other relevant articles worth reading are “Design Loves a Depression” published in January and “Design Hates a Depression”
