Friday Finds Japanese Design
Found this little gem which thankfully had pictures and some English text. Design of Design is written by Kenya Hara, a leading design mind and the designer of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1998 Nagano winter Olympic games.
I don't know the context for this three-part framework for information—clarity, creativity, joy/humor—but I absolutely love it.
And the framework seems to apply to product design...
...and information design. Want a clear, creative, and fun passport stamp? Look no further!
You can buy a slightly different English language version of this book called Designing Design on Amazon.
