• FutureKind: Design by and for the People

Phillips, Robert, 2019, Book, FutureKind: Design by and for the People Thames & Hudson, London. ISBN 9780500519790

Abstract or Description:

We have always made things - intelligent design is part of what makes us human - but with technology becoming more complicated, we have become accustomed to the belief that only experts. This is the world of social design and it has a kinder reach than ‘design consumption’.
This world, where primary school children learn coding and shoppers walk into a high street store to meet with people who will listen to their ideas and show them how they might be made real. And it’s not the future. Open source design is creating an opportunity for ‘us’ to re-make our world right now. The possibility of using local information to create global change is already here...
So be kind with your ideas.
We also believe that our modern everyday lives cause harm to the natural world. Yet the types of objects that we can now make, enhanced by digital technologies and incorporating downloadable content or artefacts, can now be made by anyone and used for community good.
