Item description for Good: Ethics of Graphic Design (Advanced Level) by Lucienne Roberts...

Is it right to use good design for bad purposes?

* Design theory as philosophy
* Designers, typographers, photographers, and illustrators define "being good"
* Fascinating for students and designers in business

In a world where awareness of ethics is increasing--but actual ethics themselves may be decreasing--where does graphic design fit in? What is the responsibility of the graphic designer? Is it right to use good design to further evil in the world, merely for the sake of being a good designer? Without dictating a moral stance, Good: Ethics and Graphic Design explores the idea of "being good" and uses what-if scenarios to explore the ramifications of different business decisions. Author Lucienne Roberts draws readers into a debate about professional "goodness" versus personal "goodness" and the relationship between ethics and design practice.

Reviews - What do customers think about Good: Ethics of Graphic Design (Advanced Level)?

Should be on every Designer's book shelf  Oct 15, 2007
The title about says it all. This book talks about ethics. Something designers need to talk about more. This book is a collection of interviews, essays and case studies from designers, lawyers, theologians, marketers, etc. It is well written (but at times it's typography is hard to read) and tackles the topics of "Who do you work for?" "What is good design?" etc. It is easy to say (if you have an income) that you won't take a contract job with a company you disagree with, however it isn't possibly as easy to do the same if you don't have a steady income. The basic principle is that ethics are not easy. However maybe they can become more important if we talk about them more.
