A new book by Frank Chimero
The Shape of Design
The Shape of Design is a book about design as a method to plan and create change. It documents the hidden steps, methods, and thoughts of the creative process to produce a field guide for the emerging skillset: improvising, creating frameworks, storytelling, and delighting audiences. It’s a handbook that explores the qualities that make for great design so we may dream big, apply the lessons to our processes, then go get our hands dirty to shape this world.
“Chimero wraps his ideas in a clear, strong voice that is witty at times, poignant at others. … If you create things, the book’s insights will inform the way you think about your work, regardless of how you make your living.”
A fieldguide for makers.

We sweated over the details so the digital versions of The Shape of Design would look as good on the screen as the book does on the printed page.
Digital versions come in DRM-free ePub, mobi, and PDF, and support your iPad, iPhone, Kindle, and Nook.
The Shape of Design would not have been possible without the support of its Kickstarter backers. Thank you.
