There are many different ways in which a product can be manufactured but most designers probably know only a handful of techniques in any detail. Both informative and inspirational, "Making It" covers a broad range of almost 90 production methods. As
well as describing each process, the text offers guidance on its pros and cons and on suitable production volumes, the costs involved, speed of production, relevant materials and typical applications. With specially commissioned diagrams, product sh
ots and photographs of the manufacturing process, "Making It" uses contemporary design as a vehicle to describe production processes. It will appeal not only to product designers involved in lighting, consumer electronics, packaging, domestic accesso
ries and tableware, but also to interior designers, furniture and graphic designers who need access to a range of production methods, as well as to all students of design.
