A designer herself, Gerritzen takes a look at the state of design today in a world where the “(communication) esthetics are in constant temporary state” and design has become “a dynamic and unstable area.”
The book asserts that with the rise of social media and the ease at which anyone can access the tools needed to create and share their own designs, “the democratization of the design world has become reality.”
With visuals taking the lead over text in this front-to-back-filled book of examples and thoughts regarding design’s place in today’s culture, it is a visual treat for those interested in the aesthetics and power of the medium.
If you’re a designer – or just have an interest in design – be sure to grab your own copy of Everyone is a Designer in the Age of Social Media online here or pick up a copy (and support!) your local bookstore.
