Shape of Design

Shape of Design is a small philosophical handbook about design and making things for people by Frank Chimero. The Shape of Design is an odd little design book. Instead of talking about typography, grids, or logos, it focuses on storytelling, co-dependency, and craft.

It tries to supplement the abundance of technical talk and how-to elsewhere by elevating why great work is done.

Shape is a book about objectives, and it zooms out to answer a couple big questions: How does it feel to make things for other people? And how can we do so in a meaningful, engaged way?
