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:
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?
“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!”
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.....”
