Human-centered design must-reads #2

Every once and a while we’ll tell you about some very inspiring books we’ve read or are still on our to-do-list! Today batch 2:


The purpose economy-Aaron Hurst
‘The Purpose Economy’ – Aaron Hurst

This book is mostly a personal story of Aaron Hurst’s own awakening as a purpose driven entrepreneur. It’s also a blueprint for a new economic era that is transforming companies, markets and our careers to better serve people and the world.


Beautiful users Ellen Lupon
‘Beautiful Users: Designing for People’ – Ellen Lupton

Beautiful Users explores the changing relationship between designers and users and considers a range of design methodologies and practices, from user research to hacking, open source, and the maker culture.


The politics of the artificial-Vitor Margolin
‘The Politics of the Artificial ‘ – Victor Margolin

Victor Margolin’s “The Politics of the Artificial” breaks fresh ground in its search for a new approach to design research and practice. Designers, engineers, architects, anthropologists, sociologists and historians should all read it to benefit from its insights.
