If you want to understand, and be a part of, the creative revolution in materials design, then Designing with Smart Textiles is the complete toolkit you need to get started. Beginning by introducing the terminology and key applications, the book goes on to examine the key design processes needed to develop interactive textile design concepts, with detailed projects and examples to help you apply these approaches in your own practice. Case studies and interviews with innovative designers introduce you to different artistic and technological practices, and demonstrate how world-leading researchers are creating new technologies, yarns, fabrics, and applications. Practitioners share unique insights into their processes, and "Tech Tips" so you can build on their research in your own work. Featured designers include: Yemi Awosile, Joanna Berzowska, Lauren Bowker, Marina Castan, Cute Circuit, Felecia Davis, Debbie Davies, Delia Dumitrescu, Martha Glazzard, Ramyah Gowrishankar, Intelligent Textiles Ltd., Sara Keith, Ebru Kurbak and Irene Posch, Barbara Layne, Eef Lubbers, Anna Persson, Mette Ramsgaard Thomsen, Rose Sinclair, Mike Starbuck, Lynn Tandler, Paola Tognazzi, Sarah Walker and Linda Worbin

MEDIA REVIEWS
A contemporary and thorough resource for those seeking to explore and apply both creative and technical understanding, combining practical knowledge and approaches to design and development with smart textiles in a logical, visually appealing and accessible way. * Jayne Mechan, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK *
This is an excellent and extremely informative book ... This book will be especially valuable to undergraduate students at the beginning of their higher education i.e. 1st and 2nd years, who wish to develop basic understanding and skills in the field of wearable electronics. The strength of this publication lies in its diversity which makes it attractive not only to fashion students, but also to students undertaking courses in product design and other relevant creative disciplines. Another strength of this publication is its layout and visual organisation, which is interesting and engaging, yet easy to follow and navigate. Overall, I would strongly recommend this publication to students and academics, with little or no previous experience in the field but who would like to learn how to plan, organise and deliver a project incorporating textiles and electronics. * Anna Sadkowska, Coventry University, UK *
