Gutes Grafikdesign basiert neben eigenen Ideen und Kreativität auf Schlüsselelementen, die durchaus erlernt und trainiert werden können.

Wie lassen sich Informationen klarer visualisieren? Wie können Lösungen emotional aufgeladen werden? Schließlich bringen die Autoren Handwerk und Konzeption zusammen, erklären, wie sich die Form auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise um den Content schmiegen kann – humorvoll, typografisch oder aber mit dem Spiel von Perspektiven.

Change by Design

Author: Tim Brown
Publisher: Vahlen
ISBN: 9783800652594
Release Date: 2016-10-04
Genre: Business & Economics

Wir befinden uns inmitten eines epochalen Wandels im Kräfteverhältnis unserer Gesellschaft, denn während die Ökonomien den Schwerpunkt von industriegefertigten Gütern auf Dienstleistungen und Erlebnisse verlagern, treten die Unternehmen die Kontrolle ab und nehmen ihre Kunden nicht mehr als „Endverbraucher“ wahr, sondern als Beteiligte an einem wechselseitigen Prozess. Im Laufe der jahrhundertlangen Geschichte der kreativen Problemlösung haben sich Designer das nötige Handwerkszeug zugelegt, das ihnen hilft, die „drei Räume der Innovation“, wie Tim Brown sie bezeichnet, zu durchlaufen: Inspiration, Ideenbildung und Umsetzung. Seiner Überzeugung nach müssen diese Fähigkeiten nun über die gesamten Unternehmen verstreut werden. Und das funktioniert mit einem der innovativsten Denkwerkzeuge zur Entwicklung von Ideen und zur Lösung von Problemen, dem Design Thinking. Im ersten Teil dieses Buches wird ein Rahmenwerk vorgestellt, das hilft, die Grundsätze und Methoden zu erkennen, die großartiges Design Thinking ermöglichen. Hier wird gezeigt, wie Design Thinking von einigen der innovativsten Unternehmen der Welt praktiziert wurde und zu bahnbrechenden Lösungen inspiriert hat. Der zweite Teil soll dazu anregen, nicht zu kleckern, sondern zu klotzen. Anhand drei großer Bereiche der menschlichen Aktivität – Unternehmen, Märkte und Gesellschaft – zeigt Tim Brown, wie aus dem Design Thinking heraus Wege entstehen können, um Ideen zu entwickeln, die unseren heutigen Herausforderungen gerecht werden. Dabei muss sich das Design Thinking in den Organisationen „aufwärts“ bewegen in die Nähe der Vorstandsetagen, wo strategische Entscheidungen getroffen werden. Denn Design ist zu wichtig geworden, als dass man es allein den Designern überlassen sollte. Tim Brown zählt zu den prominentesten Personen auf dem Gebiet von Design und Innovation weltweit. Er ist CEO und Präsident von IDEO, das Unternehmen, das die Apple-Maus und den Palm V entwickelt hat. Tim Brown spricht regelmäßig über den Wert des Designs und von Innovationen, unter anderem auf dem Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos oder bei TED Talks. Er berät zahlreiche Fortune 100 Unternehmen. Seine Arbeiten wurden bereits in der Axis Gallery in Tokio, dem Design Museum in London und dem MOMA in New York ausgestellt.
