When Designing for People was first published in 1955, Henry Dreyfuss wrote, "In less than half a century it will be A.D. 2000. Who can say what life will be like then?" If anyone had an idea, it was Henry Dreyfuss. This quintessential guide is the only book to feature his key ideas, professional accomplishments, and timeless advice.
This edition is composed of the entire 1955 book and, in addition, the material that Dreyfuss added to the 1967 edition (including his re-appraisal of what the future promised). Designing for People is a time capsule, providing invaluable insights into industrial design's past as well as catapulting our imaginations into future possibilities for human engineering.
It is also the work of a great pioneer whose extraordinary journey shows us why the industrial designer must be a true Renaissance man--at once an engineer, businessman, salesman, public relations expert, and of course, an artist.
