NEA Series on Design
At the heart of this book is a conviction that design innovation is inseparable from social engagement, and thus from public service. Design professionals have a responsibility to understand and respond to a larger public good. As part of the NEA Series on Design, this publication documents and describes varied instances of such positive design practices, specifically in the provision of high quality, university-based design services to underserved local communities. It also suggests a framework for sustaining and encouraging such work.
