Situating Design in Alberta, 2021

I am an editor of Situating Design in Alberta, a new book published by the University of Alberta Press. The book introduces Alberta designers and design work and their local/global contexts.

Reviewers called the book ground-breaking and wrote that it has “potential to influence policy makers within the province of Alberta as they work to rethink the economy” and could “contribute to how the future of the province is shaped.”
