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.
