The concept of 'design culture' is a new and important idea within academic design. But what is this emergent discipline? Why does it matter? Featuring an impressive range of international case studies, Design Culture looks at everything from the function of a Danish clothing company and the evolution of New Zealand's resource-based economy to the introduction of 'design culture' in Jordan. The book interrogates what this emergent discipline is, its methodologies, its scope and its relationships with other fields of study. The work's interdisciplinary approach brings fresh thinking to this fast-evolving field of study.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This stimulating introduction to the approaches and ideas which inform design culture should do much to promote new ways of thinking about both design and culture, and the dialectic between them. * Pat Kirkham, Professor Emerita at the Bard Graduate Center, USA and Professor of Design History at Kingston University, UK *
Design Culture is an essential contribution to the field of design studies. It addresses the ubiquity of the term 'design' from a cross sectional perspective, while introducing a precise, conceptual and methodological focus. * Claudia Mareis, Professor of Design Studies at the Academy of Art and Design, Basel, Switzerland *
