THE GOOD DESIGN GUIDE
An interactive electronic and printed book, The Good Design Guide is based on the main life cycle stages of a product from life cycle thinking and explores the eco-design approaches to reducing environmental impacts in product design.
After years of working in sustainable design education, the idea to develop an interactive e-book became a quick and effective way of transferring the critical knowledge parts for design educators.
Created for secondary and early university students, the book is intended to provide a user-centric design experience where the reader can pick their own adventure through the interactive map.
It's jam packed full of fun, interesting, and informative content on design thinking and sustainability. With over 100 pages, the e-book uses a unique interactive format that allows the reader to navigate through the content along their own inquiry path. The book dives into design problem solving, life cycle thinking, and sustainable design strategies whilst posing a range of design challenge questions for the reader to solve. The tube-map-style home page allows for the reader to quickly navigate to areas of interest and explore on their own terms.
