I’m proud to announce that my knowledge company Designboost has released its first annual book named “Designboost 07”. It’s the first in a series of books that in words, pictures and moving media describes the work of Designboost. Designboost is a knowledge company that helps companies and organisations to learn more about design in general and sustainable design in particular and how to use it as a competitive weapon and turn it into a business advantage.
The book “Designboost 07” is built on the vision “sharing design knowledge” with different texts about sustainable design from Designboost “boosters” and friends. Among the contributors you will find acclaimed personalities like Mathilda Tham – professor at Beckmans College of design, Sean Pillot de Chenecey – consumer insight and brand development, Kristina Börjesson – PhD research associate/Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Tim Power – architect and Jennifer Leonard – designer researcher and writer/IDEO (among others).
‘Designboost 2007’ also brings forward all the one-liner quotes about sustainable design written by the participants at the main event that took place in Malmö October 17–19, 2007. On top of this different conceptualizations of sustainable design by a range of international design driven companies are presented.
At the end of the book a DVD is inserted with some different films about Designboost and its activities. There is also filmed interviews with all the participants at the 2007 main event.
