The 30 Most Important Books for Product Designers

By                                                                                       Cliff Kuang                                                            
                                                     
One of the most common questions at any student Q&A with a master of design is: Where do you get your inspiration from? And the only answer we've ever heard which makes any sense is: Books. Reading. Keeping your eyes open to ideas, rather than literal pieces of design. And that makes Design Sojourn's list of the 30 most important books for industrial designers particularly useful. That link has short descriptions of each book on the list, from Kenya Hara's Designing Design, a meditation on simplicity and haptic design to Lateral Thinking: Creativity Step by Step, by Edward De Bono, which dissects academic research on creativity. Here's the entire list, with links to Amazon, and which Design Sojourn has helpfully organized into three sections: Thinking, Process, and Designer Skills. The first two will be particularly useful to anyone hoping to apply design thinking more broadly:
Thinking
1) The Design of Everyday Things by Don Norman
2) The Laws of Simplicity (Simplicity: Design, Technology, Business, Life) by John Maeda
3) Fab: The Coming Revolution on Your Desktop–from Personal Computers to Personal Fabrication by Neil Gershenfeld
4) Designing Design by Kenya Hara
5) Universal Principles of Design by William Lidwell, Kritina Holden and Jill Butler.  
6) Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things by William McDonough and Michael Braungart.
7) It’s Not How Good You Are, Its How Good You Want to Be: The World’s Best Selling Book by Paul Arden
8) The Lovemarks Effect: Winning in the Consumer Revolution by Kevin Roberts
9) Small Is the New Big: and 183 Other Riffs, Rants, and Remarkable Business Ideas by Seth Godin.
10) Design (Tom Peters Essentials) by Tom Peters.
11) Journals from the Design Management Institute by DMI members.
12) The Creative Priority : Putting Innovation to Work in Your Business by Jerry Hirshberg
13) Designing Interactions by Bill Moggridge.
14) Lateral Thinking: Creativity Step by Step by Edward De Bono.
15) What They Don’t Teach You At Harvard Business School: Notes From A Street-Smart Executive by Mark H. McCormack.
16) The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene.

Process
18) Design Secrets: Products 1 and 2: 50 Real-Life Product Design Projects Uncovered by Lynn Haller and Cheryl Dangel Cullen, and edited by Industrial Designers Society of America.
19) Process: 50 Product Designs from Concept to Manufacture by Jennifer Hudson.
20) Manufacturing Processes for Design Professionals by Rob Thompson.
21) Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature by Janine M. Benyus  
22) Product Design and Development by Karl T. Ulrich and Steven D. Eppinger.

May 24, 2012POSTED BY Jon Kolko
The Impact of Rowena Reed Kostellow

Culture comes from a number of forces intertwining; these include technological advancement, politics, mass media, and design – and design education. One of the most interesting, yet subtle, historic paths of influence in design can be traced to a single person: Rowena Reed Kostellow. She was the Chair of the Industrial Design department at Pratt after helping to create the first ID program at Carnegie Mellon (then Carnegie Tech), and she was the driving force behind the study of form. This program taught: Rectilinear volumes, Curvilinear volumes, Rectilinear and Curvilinear, Composition of Fragments, Planar Construction, Lines in Space, Construction, Convexity, Concavity, Abstract Analysis, and Space Design.

She taught these skills to designers like Jay Doblin, who went on to teach at IIT and then form Doblin Group; Marc Harrison, who pioneered Universal Design and taught at RISD; Craig Vogel, who taught Carnegie Mellon (and who is now the director of the Center for Design Research and Innovation at DAAP in Cincinnati); and Read Viemeister, who founded the Department of Industrial Design at the Dayton Art Institute.

That’s an interesting history lesson, but for me, it becomes more interesting when you consider that:

    Jay Doblin taught Jim Hennessey (who co-authored a number of books with Victor Papanek) and then went on to work with and influence Larry Keeley
    Marc Harrison taught for thirty years at RISD
    Craig Vogel taught at CMU for fourteen years. He was one of my professors, and also taught, among others, April Starr (now teaching at IIT), Justin Maguire (ECD at frog), Dino Sanchez (ACD at frog), Katie Minardo Scott (Director, MAYA), Justin Petro (President, Thinktiv), and Chris Kasabach (Director, Thomas J. Watson Foundation).
    Read Viemeister’s son Tucker founded Smart Design, opened frog’s New York office, and acted as EVP of Razorfish.

In a way, Reed’s form program has become so engrained in the fabric of professional designers that you can trace her influence now to each Foundations program in the country, at schools like SCAD, RISD, Art Center, Pratt, CMU, DAAP, and more. Consider the output of each designer, trained in a particular theory and approach, and then play out how that influence is embedded in the products, systems, services they design. And – most importantly – think of how that philosophy or influence is embedded in the design pedagogy of design education, once these designers go on to teach others. I can trace my curriculum at Austin Center for Design directly to the influences of four people, all of whom were teaching at Carnegie Mellon at the same time. Richard Buchanan, now at Case, taught the underlying theory for the way I think of design: as a form of rhetoric, and as a temperament of technology. Herb Simon heavily influenced the way I consider problem solving and computing. Bonnie John stressed the humanization of engineering culture, and Craig Vogel taught an appreciation of form, culture, and the lasting cultural impact of mass production.

I find the spheres of influence in design education fascinating, mostly because I realize the tremendous power of design in shaping the world around us. That really means that a single designer carries a tremendous amount of responsibility, and that means that design educators had better do a damn good job.
