Designer & Client follows eight design commissions through my correspondence with my clients – each chosen for their experience in the world of boats. Each chapter sees us through a different boat from its initial inception to a completed design. Within this framework, I weave in my design philosophy which should have applications well beyond the choice of a pleasure boat. This book should be of value to anyone concerned with disentangling design from blind consumerism and who is open to the development of a more grounded relationship to our things.
