Jessica Helfand has emerged as a leading voice of a new generation of designers. Her essays -at once pithy, polemical, and precise- appear in places as diverse as "Eye", "Print", "ID", "The New Republic", and the "Los Angeles Times". The essays here decode the technologies, themes, and visual phenomena that frame contemporary design theory and practice, and address topics as far-ranging as Talking Barbies, mindless manifestoes, scratchy typography, reality television, de Stijl geometry, chicken nuggets, and sex on the screen. Anyone looking for an entertaining and insightful guide to the world of design will simply not find a better book on the subject.
