Format: Paperback
I'm writing a dissertation on ethics and morals in graphic design.
This was the first book i looked at, and is a great starting point. covers all areas within the field.
Has interviews, history, interviews, reviews, case studies... branching off in all directions. Including images, and is easy to read and nicely designed inside (but not crazy distracting design- pretty simple really).
It even includes how ethical the authors are in the process of creating this book, which is very honest.
If you're looking at such a subject, get this book!

I bought this book whilst compiling my dissertation research on the feasibility of ethics in design. Lucienne Roberts does not disappoint but it did make me question my chosen profession negatively.

I am the first to admit that my background is not in intellectual theory. When I had to complete a project heavily based around ethical design for my degree this caused me some apprehension at first. This book cured all of my worries.
It looks at ethics from the view of respected political, sociological, philosophical, theological and legal leaders in each field while also including the key concepts of thinkers throughout history such as Plato. I found this really useful because it meant I had to do little background research and when I did this book had given me the starting point to go from. I couldn't have asked for more.
I am so glad I have read this book. By using many different forms of design it provides `food for thought' which I prefer to preaching. I think this will really help me when I begin to look for work and do work as a graphic designer. Thanks to this book I have now begun to form my own opinions about the accountability of a graphic designer in the knowledge of other viewpoints within and outside of the profession. This is unmissable for design practices, students and professionals.

Should be on every Designer's book shelf 14 Oct 2007
By Eric C. Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The title about says it all. This book talks about ethics. Something designers need to talk about more. This book is a collection of interviews, essays and case studies from designers, lawyers, theologians, marketers, etc. It is well written (but at times it's typography is hard to read) and tackles the topics of "Who do you work for?" "What is good design?" etc. It is easy to say (if you have an income) that you won't take a contract job with a company you disagree with, however it isn't possibly as easy to do the same if you don't have a steady income. The basic principle is that ethics are not easy. However maybe they can become more important if we talk about them more.
