Do Design: Why beauty is key to everything. (Paperback)

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 and our soul is restored.

Designer Alan Moore invites us to rethink not only what we produce – whether it’s a website, a handmade chair, or a business – but how and why. With examples from Apple, Yeo Valley 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?

What fellow meanderers are saying

Can’t take them off!
The Meander Adventure Trousers are my new all-round, go-to trouser of choice - I can’t take them off.  They are so comfortable and versatile I need them in every colour.  Superb work Meander, thanks for my new favourite trousers :)”

Good texture, wash well, keeping colour well
Bought some T-shirts for me and my husband. They were all soooo lovely. Thought my husband was looking particularly good yesterday and then noticed it was because he had his meander T-shirt on!”

Margaret, UK

So Comfortable!
I bought these as we went into lockdown in the UK, and I don't think there's been a day yet when I haven't worn them for working from home. Possibly the most comfortable trousers I've ever owned. Can't wait to ride to work.....”
