The book gives a wide view of present-day trends in design education by presenting individual courses of special interest from a variety of schools & departments. In its lively survey of a varied field, one of the subjects documented is that of interdisciplinary team-work, aimed at a better understanding of technics & media in relation to the environment. Well-known teachers & pratising designers from many countries show how much the design profession is a synthesis of different activities  and what intelectual & artistic demands are continuelly associated with the process of combining these ressources. The book offers a wealth of creative and artistic ideas & insights to everyone working in the field of visual communications & the associated branches of education.
