Do Book Co - Design
So much passes us by, unnoticed. We multi-task, switch between screens, work faster. When was the last time you paused to consider a beautifully-made object or stunning natural landscape? Yet this is when our spirits lift and our soul is restored.
Designer Alan Moore invites us to rethink not only what we produce – whether it’s a website, a handmade chair, or a business – but how and why. With examples from Apple, Yeo Valley and Blitz Motorcycles, we are encouraged to ask: is it useful and considered. Is it a thing of beauty?
Do Design will inspire you to:
- Improve your creative process
- Raise the quality and craft of your work
- Consider the experience as much as the product
- Adopt simplicity, utility and honesty as guiding principles
We are creative beings. We love to make things. This book will inspire you to create better things for better reasons. Things that people will love – for a long time to come. Some say beauty is a luxury. But what if it is key to creating a better world for us all?
Since their launch in 2013, The Do Book Co have been publishing inspirational pocket guides to help creative entrepreneurs, makers and Doers work smarter and create positive change. Written by experts whose stories and ideas have inspired others to go and Do, the collection spans design, business, wellbeing and sustainable living with each book focusing on the ‘doing’ rather than the background theory. Concise, practical guides that make it easier to Do stuff.
There are now 30+ books in the collection and we're honoured to be stocking a small range. A royalty from each copy sold goes to the author and back to the Do Lectures in Wales - the annual event we continue to attend and where we source all our authors.
