My latest book, Persistent Fools: Cunning Intelligence and the Politics of Design, deals with the connection between design and trickery. It explores how design is always a manipulative act and argues for more strategic use of trickery in order to take power back from corporate design interests.
Design for Dasein
My first book is Design for Dasein: Understanding the Design of Experiences, which focuses on the relationship between design thinking, experience design, and the human experience. It uses phenomenology to frame how we understand the shift from design as physical object production to design as a means to shape individual and collective experience.
