David Carlson is a Swedish designer with over twenty years practice experience. Brent Richards is a Chartered Architect and designer, and Director of the Design Laboratory at Saint Martins College University of the Arts, London. In this recent issue of the report, the two examine what they believe is a crisis for design: design contamination or "a design pandemic of gibberish and solutions for the one, and not the many", and agitate for a war against "designerism" or the aesthetic proliferation of unsustainable products, processes and environments. The report is available for free on David's weblog.
