"I have worked at the intersection of design and strategy for over 25 years, have read a great deal of nonsense written about both, fortunately this book bucks the trend. A ready reckoner for anyone looking to develop cohesive, intelligent new design work rooted in plans, not hopes." Simon Manchipp, Founder & Executive Strategic Creative Director of SomeOne."A very accessible and comprehensive overview of a strategic design process - with practical tools and guides for working strategically with design - for both students and practitioners."Rachel Cooper OBE, Distinguished Professor of Design Management, Lancaster University, UK."Wanda's book is encyclopedic and unrivaled. The most comprehensive deconstruction of the rigor it takes to build on a strategy to design a sustainable future, whether you are a designer, a marketer, or a manager." Alina Wheeler, Author Designing Brand Identity: an essential resource for the whole branding team.
