Overview

Design is fundamental to our lives, for it is really about the making of things, which is the business of artists, scientists and technologists alike. All are concerned with innovation and problem-solving and can profit from a study of ideas developed in other disciplines.

It covers such topics as number, ratio and scale, rhythm and harmony, similarity and contrast, and suggests how these may relate to design problems.
