Just Design looks at how design can be used to positively impact our social environment. The book is divided into six sections: Supporting, Seeking, Organizing, Teaching, Reacting and Celebrating. Each section contains essays and interviews by leading designers engaged in projects that aim for social change. I had never really thought about design in such an in-depth way. I always took design to be a style or a fashion rather than functional. Until now I never fully appreciated how design is responsible for encouraging certain habits and providing solutions by fusing functionality with appeal.
