Technical, economic, aesthetic, and social developments along with political, psychological, cultural, ecological, and global influences will continue to impact software design (and all types of design). Throughout the text we can see that design is an... Read more
Very helpful handy guide for class. Easy to read, not written in a pretentious way that most art books are. I enjoy the reading for class I have to do from this book
