  • Another book? yawn.....


    I'll all for the cause but, really, I don't think producing yet another 'designer' book is going to make much of a difference. Why is it that when there's a crisis of this kind all that designers/artists can think about is producing a juicy book, OK, OK and an accompanying exhibition and/or website (that, usually, most people don't see) . Aren't designers supposed to be a bit more creative? aren't there any better ways at reaching/involving the masses than resorting to just another nice print job. Oh! and why singling out Tibet? - make it against TOTAL abuse - now that would be something to go for (plus they wouldn't have to change their logo). The Tibet/China issue is big, probably bigger than we think, which means it deserves more responsible (and creative) action.

Design, when nourished by a deep spiritual concern for planet, environment, and people, results in a moral and ethical viewpoint. Starting from this point of departure will provide new forms and expressions - the new aesthetic - we are all desperately trying to find. Victor Papanek from 'The Green Imperative'.
