Do 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, our soul is restored.

Designer Alan Moore invites us to rethink what we produce – whether it's a website, a handmade chair, or a business – and how we go about it. With examples including Apple, Pixar 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?

'An excellent guide to the essence of beauty – the freedom to create it and an argument for its power and importance to the soul.' Tim Smit, co-founder of The Eden Project

We were all born inherently creative. We all have the capacity to bring beautiful things into this world and should be unapologetic about wanting to create them, whatever they are

The effort to create enduring beauty is not dependent on style but truth. Beauty is what lends things their immortality.
