‘How to Design’ Series+

The Design Museum was keen to create a collection of books that serve as an accessible ‘primer’ for students-in-waiting or others who wanted to know more about what happens behind the scenes in the various creative industries. Each volume in the How to Design a House/Light/Chair/Typeface series looks at the basic design principles, processes, materials and techniques used in creating some of the most successful and enduring designs we know and use today. Our cover designs were intentionally minimalist to set them apart from the plethora of similar themed practical handbooks. The series is co-published by the Design Museum and Conran Octopus.
