As the Great Depression started in 1929, several dozen creative individuals from a variety of artistic fields, including theatre, advertising, graphics, fashion and furniture design, pioneered a new profession. Responding to unprecedented public and industry demand for new styles, these artists entered the industrial world during what was called the "Machine Age," to introduce "modern design" to the external appearance and form of mass-produced, functional, mechanical consumer products formerly not considered art. The popular designs by these "machine designers" increased sales and profits dramatically for manufacturers, which helped the economy to recover; established a new profession, industrial design; and within a decade, changed American products from mechanical monstrosities into sleek, modern forms expressive of the future. This book is about those industrial designers and how they founded, developed, educated and organized today's profession of more than 50,000 practitioners.

The Social Design Reader explores the ways in which design can be a catalyst for social change. Bringing together key texts of the last fifty years, editor Elizabeth Resnick traces the emergence of the notion of socially responsible design. This volume represents the authentic voices of the thinkers, writers and designers who are helping to build a 'canon' of informed literature which documents the development of the discipline. The Social Design Reader is divided into three parts. Section 1: Making a Stand includes an introduction to the term 'social design' and features papers which explore its historical underpinnings. Section 2: Creating the Future documents the emergence of social design as a concept, as a nascent field of study, and subsequently as a rapidly developing professional discipline, and Section 3: A Sea Change is made up of papers acknowledging social design as a firmly established practice. Contextualising section introductions are provided to aid readers in understanding the original source material, while summary boxes clearly articulate how each text fits with the larger milieu of social design theory, methods, and practice.

Sustainability has become a pressing and permanent issue for designers within the last three decades and its momentum and urgency as a key consideration for modern designers makes it one of the most important and critically discussed subfields within design. The Sustainable Design Reader responds to this, reflecting and furthering the debate. The Sustainable Design Reader provides much-needed overview and examination of the discipline, enabling readers to investigate, understand and critique the role of sustainable design and its importance within contemporary-design industry and culture. Essays range from examining ecological concerns such as recycling and need to develop product longevity, to critical investigations into the management and development of sustainable modern cities. From the historical background of sustainable design and how it came to be an essential design consideration, to how the practice of it will ultimately shape our future, this book provides an original mapping-out of the discipline.

If there is a designer whose name is synonymous with industrial design it is Raymond Loewy (1893-1986). Among the literally thousands of his well-known forms, shapes and designs are the Coca-Cola bottle, the Studebaker, the U.S. Post Office logo, streamlines trains and ocean liners, the Shell and Exxon logos, NASA's Skylab, and the interior of the Concorde.

In Industrial Design the pioneering half-century of Loewy's career is offered in a stunning visual presentation of his most famous design achievements together with his personal account of a life in design.

A John Heskett Reader brings together a selection of the celebrated design historian John Heskett's key works, introduced and edited by Clive Dilnot of Parsons, the New School, USA. Heskett, who passed away in early 2014, was a pioneering British-born writer and lecturer. His research was foundational for the study of industrial design, and his research into the relationship between design, policy and economic value is still a regular reference-point for academics and students alike. This anthology represents well the great range of his work, covering such varied topics as the growth of Japanese industrialism, modernism in the Third Reich, and 1980's corporate design management. Including both hard-to-access and previously unpublished material like Crafts, Commerce and Industry and Economic Value of Design, the book demonstrates Heskett's passionate interest in exploring the relationship of design and making with economic value across the entirety of human history. Featured texts include, What is Design, Chinese Design: what can we learn from the past?, The 'American System' and Mass Production, The Industrial Applications of Tubular Steel, Creative Destruction: the nature and consequences of change through design, Reflections on Design and Hong Kong, besides many others.
