Product Description:

Good design is something we often recognize but can't express in words. This graphically delightful primer handily defines the seven characteristics of good design and shows why it matters. It is guaranteed to raise readers' Design IQ! This book by a 40-year design-industry veteran targets creatives of all ages, including tweens, teens, and STEAM students and their parents, by making a complex subject accessible. Each of the seven chapters defines and explains a characteristic of good design, accompanied by five examples of product designs rendered in cut-paper art. The colorful artwork and clear, simple language make complex and sometimes abstract ideas easy to understand. Readers will see a wide range of everyday objects that meet the criteria for good design: works well, looks good, opens our minds to new ideas, improves lives, brings joy, is innovative, and stands the test of time.
