Editorial Reviews

Barry Curtis
"The Culture of Design offers both a very exciting and an innovative contribution to the field . . . this should be a popular textbook for art and design courses. It could also be an important text to support the increasingly visual turn influencing cultural studies, sociology and material and spatial culture courses."
Dr Juliette MacDonald
This is a thoughtful update on previous editions; Julier takes time to pick up on 'sticky' issues and explain them in detail without sounding pedantic or over-bearing. This new edition will be a welcome addition to contemporary design culture and of use to designers and students alike.

Professor Laurene Vaughan
Just as the domains of design studies and practice are in a constant state of evolution, this Third Edition of The Culture of Design has evolved to present a comprehensive discussion of contemporary design as a socio-technical cultural phenomenon in theory and practice.
Professor Anders V. Munch
Few books have had the success of producing a new scholarly field in the way of Guy Julier’s The Culture of Design. This book has proved to be the cornerstone in the curriculum of courses and new educations in Design Culture Studies.
Cameron Tonkinwise
The Culture of Design remains the only historically situated yet comprehensively contemporary account of how design as a creative industry materializes values into everyday lifestyles. Julier's capacity to extend his framework to cover the large and diverse changes design has undergone - in relation to digital economies and the rise of design thinking and social design - since the last edition, attest to his analyses' validity and power.
Ilpo Koskinen
The third edition of The Culture of Design has again improved upon earlier versions. It has valuable new parts on economy that improve it and open new possibilities for research. Prof. Julier has also managed to keep the valuable features of his book. I believe there will be a global market for the book, and I find it still a valuable contribution to design education as well as research.
