Overview

This is the first-ever survey of American design that cuts across the four disciplines of architecture, product design, graphic design, and new media. Put together by the National Design Museum surveys the up-to-the-minute trends in American design from architecture to product and graphic design to new media. This comprehensive survey catalogs the best in architecture, interiors, environments, landscapes, products, furniture, fashion, objects, typefaces, posters, publications, film and TV graphics, and interactive media from the last three years.

Organized around a series of themes—Branded, Fluid, Local, Minimal, Narrative, Physical, Reclaimed, and Unbelievable—Design Culture Now presents projects from over 75 designers, ranging from new names to current work by established figures. Some of the people whose work is represented include graphic designers Bruce Mau and Stefan Sagemeister, style guru Martha Stewart, product designers Jonathan Ive (Apple Computer) and Tinker Hatfield (Nike), product designers Robert Egger and Moss, film set designer Dante Feretti, The Lion King director and costume, puppet, and set designer Julie Taymor, architects Neil Denari and Frank Gehry, and digital special effects designers Pixar, Digital Domain, and Industrial Light and Magic.

This exhaustive survey contains hundreds of full-color images and a groovy design by Ellen Lupton, designer of Mixing Messages.
