Good | Uma introdução à ética no design gráfico

# Sugestão de leitura da semana:

Roberts, Lucienne (2007). Good: An Introduction to Ethics in Graphic Design. Ava Publishing. ISBN-13: 9782940373147


"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. "
