Blowing away the original Kickstarter goal of $27,000, it looks like we are all in for a great surprise when designer Frank Chimero creates his book, The Shape of Design. Still an idea and a few words written, the book will take shape from years of writing, speaking, and thinking about design. Frank wants to create a book not about how to design, but, more about why. He says, “As our world moves faster and as things become less stable, it becomes more important for individuals to embrace ambiguity, understand paradox, and realize that two things can conflict and still somehow both be true. We must realize that logic doesn’t always work, and that sometimes nonsense is the best answer.” The book will be about the storytelling, concept, craft, and improvisation inherent in design, why it’s so important, and how we can embrace and understand design to benefit our daily lives. Not just for designers, The Shape of Design will be for anyone that want’s to be drunk inspired.
The Shape of Design is inching towards $70,000! We are helping him get there, watch the video below and I’m sure you will too. Learn more about this Kickstarter project from an interview with Frank on Good Magazine’s Blog.
