In "How Design Makes Us Think: And Feel and Do Things", AIGA medalist and former AIGA National President Sean Adams delves into the profound impact of design on our thoughts and behaviors.

This visually engaging exploration goes beyond the aesthetics of design, examining how it influences our emotions, intellect, and even our actions.

Through numerous examples across various design disciplines, Adams illustrates how design can provoke, inspire, amuse, anger, reassure, or subtly shape our responses.

The book also explores the sociological, psychological, and historical factors influencing our reactions to design, providing designers and clients with a deeper understanding of their responsibility to create intentional and impactful designs.

This essential read caters to designers, educators, marketers, and anyone interested in unraveling the intricate relationship between design and human cognition.
