There are many practical design books about tools and methods, but very few that cover the mindset of making. What are the opportunities, problems, and possibilities of the creative practice? And once the work is done, what happens when it is released into the world?

The Shape of Design is a rumination on making things for other people. It weaves its way through the creative process, craft, and storytelling to see the whole picture: we make the world and the world makes us.
