Creating good user interaction is not so much a design problem as it is a power struggle. But designers want to create great products and they don’t want to play politics around the water cooler. Martin and Steve present a clear vision for finding a middle ground, empowering you to succeed without selling your soul, compromising the planet, or urdening generations to come.

This book serves as a critical call to action for designers—action that you’ve probably been contemplating but have been too hesitant to take or unclear on how to even get started. Martin and Steve delve into the intertwined narratives of design, economics, and the environment, uncovering untapped opportunities for organisations to adopt a more life-centric approach. They don’t stop there. They also offer practical tools that you can use today to start making an impact within your organisation and wider ecosystem.
Nirish Shakya, design educator and host of the Design Feeling Podcast
Design inhabits a liminal space between producer and consumer, where leverage is high; this publication dives into this space and finds ways to apply Indigenous, systems, and futures thinking on multiple levels.
This book challenges designers and decision-makers to ask the difficult questions about the linear design model of “designing more stuff to sell to more people” and provides insightful and practical design-led approaches that are good for business and consumers and have less harmful impacts on our planet.
