Design Your Life Summary

Design Your Life: The Pleasures and Perils of Everyday Things by Ellen Lupton

"Design your Life" is a series of irreverent and realistic snapshots about how design functions in everyday situations by leading design thinker Ellen Lupton and her twin sister Julia Lupton. Including over 150 color illustrations throughout, it shows how design is about much more than what's bought at high-end stores or the modern look at IKEA. Design is critical thinking: a way to look at the world and wonder why things work, and why they don't. Illustrated with original paintings, "Design your Life" casts a sharp eye on everything from roller bags, bras, toilet paper and stuffed animals to parenting, piles, porches and potted plants. Speaking to the popular interest in design as well as people's desire to make their own way, this thoughtful book takes a fresh and humorous approach to make some serious points about the impact of design on our lives. As Chip Kidd, author, designer and art director says 'Lupton is exceptionally adept at both the verbal and the visual, which is not to be taken for granted in this new era of 'designer as author', an era that she so skillfully pioneered and has inspired many of us to follow suit'.

Design Your Life Reviews

"Design your life is an utter pleasure, like a delicious tray of warm brownies that also happen to be nutritious. I've never encountered a book about design so smart and fun and unpretentious and easy to love." - Kurt Andersen, author of Heyday And Turn Of The Century."
