Centered: People and Ideas Diversifying Design (Paperback)Kaleena Sales (author)
A collection of beautifully illustrated essays and interviews presenting a rich, inclusive, contemporary, and global vision of design diversity.
As the design industry re-examines its emphasis on Eurocentric ideologies and wrestles with its conventional practices, Centered advocates for highlighting and giving a voice to the people, places, methods, ideas, and beliefs that have been eclipsed or excluded by dominant design movements. Curated by Kaleena Sales, a powerful voice and noted advocate for diversity in the design community, the thirteen essays and interviews in this volume will feature important and underrepresented design work and projects like:
