David Berman's Do Good Design
David Berman’s Do Good Design

David Berman was asked to write this book in 2009 by PeachPit Press on design and social responsibility. It’s a call to action. It alerts designers to the role design plays on a global level and offers them a sustainable approach to both the practice and the consumption of design. Its small format (5.25 x 8 inches) was marketed as a book you could read on a med-haul flight. David asked me to work with him on the graphic design (with crazy deadlines which we met every time). Twelve chapters, 258 images, and 180 pages later we uploaded the files to the publisher. Since its first publication, it has been translated into Korean, Russian, Chinese, Indonesian, and braille with Russian, Malay, and Spanish in the works. The English version sold out and a 2013 edition was released with updated content, improved photo quality (we had a wee bit more time this round), and printed using vegetable inks on 100 percent post-consumer papers.
