A “Good” Read

Do Good Design is a call to action: It alerts designers to the role they play in persuading global audiences to fulfill invented needs.

Berman outlines a more sustainable approach to both the practice and the consumption of design. All professionals will be inspired by the message of how one industry can feel better about itself by holding onto its principles. Today, everyone is a designer. And the future of civilisation is our common design project.

Design matters, like never before. The current state of the global environmental, social and economic crises designers have a choice: inventing deceptions that encourage more consumption — or helping to repair the world. To get your copy you know what to do.

Victor & Susie

Victor and Susie is a new children’s book created by Brighten the Corners, and is illustrated entirely from type. It’s a modern tale about caring, mending, and letting-go, drawn with letters and punctuation marks.

“The main idea was to stress the images and text equally,” explains the book’s author, Billy Kiossoglou of BTC, “and play with the fact that they’re both made out of the same ‘ingredients’, which are simply arranged and subsequently read differently. Children’s books often treat text and images like they belong to altogether different worlds and we wanted to avoid that.”
