Conditional Design is a design method formulated by the graphic designers Luna Maurer, Jonathan Puckey, Roel Wouters and the artist Edo Paulus which foregrounds process over finished products. As a design strategy, it is defined by playfully designed sets of rules and conditions that stimulate collaboration between participants and lead to unpredictable outcomes.
The Conditional Design workbook provides insights into the Conditional Design method and invites readers to actively join in and participate in the workshops presented in the book. Readers are taken on a step-by-step journey through the workshops, showing how they evolved. Playing with human interaction, frameworks and generative systems Conditional Design offers endless creative opportunities. The systems are simple, the processes are challenging and fun and the results are often surprising. The book can also be used as a guide to create your own workshop.
Just pick up the book, a pen and a piece of paper and get started!
