Designer Maker User traces the evolution of design, from its roots in the Industrial Revolution to its transformation by the digital explosion. Rather than present a conventional chronology, this book focuses on the continuing interaction between the three key players – Designers, Makers and Users – and the role of design in modern society.

Featuring pivotal writings on design, a carefully-curated portfolio of design landmarks and a simple timeline charting the development of the modern design industry, Designer Maker User pushes beyond the walls of the museum, providing students and non-specialists with an appreciation for the significance of design and its far-reaching impact on the world in which we live. It is not only a view into the Design Museum's permanent collection, but also a remarkable primer on contemporary design.
