Format: Paperback
I'd recommend this book as a great read and reference book for those wanting to build an understanding of what is going on in today's global design industry. It plots the change from being focused on products to services and product/service eco-systems and the transition from a back-room support service to being a strategic thrust in the boardroom, used to develop solutions to the biggest global challenges. The numerous examples across different continents and countries show us what is happening and where.

Format: Paperback
Design transitions has an engaging array of stories that illustrate how design is evolving.

The global perspective that the book presents provides a view point into emerging design and innovation hubs, such as Asia. It is within these markets that I can identify some of my favourite stories from the book, which outline modern techniques for design research. In addition to the business based case studies, there are compelling examples of how social design is being applied to address social challenges, and how governments across the world are adopting this new way of problem solving.

I recommend this book to university students who are embracing design thinking and social design for the first time. Finally, to all those professional designers out there - make sure you cast your eyes on this, as it is a comprehensive snap shot of how design is changing now.

Format: Paperback
I've becoming tired of the number of design books that assume that nothing happens beyond the States (and maybe English-speaking European countries), so this book is a breath of fresh air in truly trying to cover the globe. Design is changing and the book captures this with interviews from a number of designers in product and service. Better to look at and read than an instructional book, more thoughtful than a coffee table book.

An illuminating read 8 May 2014
By James Robert Steane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Its easy to find design books that showcase portfolio work or read 'how-to' guides but its rare to find quality publications that share designers' stories about what they think, value and describe how their practice is changing. This book does this in spades, the variety of individuals, organisations and countries make this a valuable reference. I've found myself intending to read just one story and before I know I've read three or four - a timely and important book.

A trip into design wonderland 26 Mar 2014
By R. J. Lindeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When reading this book you feel like Yee, Tan and Jefferies take you on a road trip to the best examples of service design in the world. Service Design and Design Thinking are two of the most exciting developments in the way companies and governments develop new services. Design thinking has come to be defined as combining empathy for the context of a problem, creativity in the generation of insights and solutions, and rationality in analyzing and fitting various solutions to the problem context.

While this might sound abstract to some people, the authors manage to bring it to live by telling real stories of how design thinking changed the lives of people.You feel their own excitement when they arrive in Curitiba, Brasil or Amsterdam and discover what communities and companies can do with this philosophy to change their way of working.
