Design and Creativity: Policy, Management and Practice

Guy Julier (Editor), Liz Moor (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook - edited

Abstract

Design and other creative industries shape our lives in numerous ways, providing 'cultural' goods such as films, music and magazines, but also shape the look and feel of everyday objects and spaces. The creative industries are also important economically; governments and businesses now make considerable efforts to manage creativity for a range of political and economic ends. Does the management of design conflict with traditional ideas of creative freedom and autonomy? How do government policies and business priorities influence the day-to-day practices of designers? And how far have the processes and purpose of creative work been changed by its new centrality to business and government? Bringing together case studies and material from a range of industries and contexts, as well as a series of interviews with practitioners, "Design and Creativity" provides a cutting-edge account of key trends in the creative industries at the start of the 21st century.
