Ruined by Design Zine Edition
By Mike Monteiro
The world is working exactly as designed. Design is a craft with an amazing amount of power. As designers, we need to see ourselves as gatekeepers of what we are bringing into the world, and what we choose not to bring into the world. Design is a craft with responsibility. Design is also a craft with a lot of blood on its hands. The monsters we unleash into the world will carry your name. This book will make you see that design is a political act and it should make you angry. In it you will learn how to evaluate the potential benefits and harm of what you’re working on. You’ll learn how to present your concerns. You’ll learn to say NO in a way that’ll make people listen. But mostly, this book will fill you with the confidence to do the job the way you always wanted to be able to do it.
