Design for People

stories about how (and why) we all can work together to make things better

Design for People is a unique book that tells the stories of twelve of our biggest projects. It's a behind-the-scenes look told by everybody involved: clients, consultants, designers, interns, vendors—and even the regular people who use the stuff we make. If you like to get into the details of how things work, Design for People is for you. 

Design for People is a tablet-sized book with an exposed binding, a phtlalate-free vinyl cover, and 256 pages—16 signatures of 16 pages. It’s illustrated with emails, sketches, presentations—and the best images ever published of our work. Karrie Jacobs wrote the introduction. The glossary explains anything (like fax machines, Paul Rand, or Star Trek) that might need explaining. And there are mini-essays by amazing people like Maira Kalman, Wynston Marsalis, and Emily Pilloton, too.
