Public Interest Design Guidebooks

Series Editors:

The Public Interest Design Guidebooks series educates distinct audiences about the power and potential of public interest design, demonstrating how it has emerged as a distinct profession. The first book, for designers, provides clear professional standards of practice following the SEED (Social Economic Environmental Design) methodology, with a step-by-step process to support those involved in PID projects. The second text addresses an academic audience, to show you how to implement public interest design methods in your teaching and help you engage students in community-based design through an understanding of the core values. Each book includes contributions from key professionals covering professional responsibility, design evaluation, business development, and capacity building through scaling, along with fully illustrated cross-referenced global case studies to help you engage in community-based design.
