    A BOOK ABOUT (THE MEANINGS OF) DESIGN AND ITS ALTERNATIVES

    concept & compilation by Siu King Chung & Phoebe Wong

     

    Designs You Don't Know What To Do With: A Book About (the meanings of) Design and Its Alternatives is a local, no-nonsense, low fidelity, (non) functional design workbook. Can be described as a hotchpotch of appropriated ideas, regenerated notions, and casual creativity, this book allows the readers to see the processes through which designs have fallen from their pedestals, like Humpty Dumpty from his wall.A profusely illustrated "information object", Designs You Don't Know What To Do With is the result of three year's creative deliberation, incessant designing, planning and organisation, based on the idea of 'design you don't know what to do with'. It follows on from an exhibition series held between 1999 and 2000 at Hong Kong Arts Centre that took the same idea as its theme.This "enlightened" book is produced as a "design object" in its own right, intended to make you think about what to do with the designs you don't know what to do with.Packed with puzzles, anecdotes, commentary, images, visual quotient, and visual psychological tests, Designs You Don't Know What To Do opens the door to a world of fun and imagination for the young-at-heart.WHO MUST OWN THIS DESIGN BOOK?Professional designers looking for illuminating ideas and conceptsDesign students find fun exercising with design objectsDesign tutors searching for ideas to work with their studentsCreative practitioners and marketers hungry for a creative tool book to stretch their minds
