Adobe Design Center

This website contains the 'Dialogue Box' and the 'Think Tank' of the Adobe Design Center, freely offering a range of full-text essays, interviews, and papers on contemporary designers, design issues and trends. Articles are presented in HTML and PDF formats, often with video or audio elements. At March 2009, there are around 150 articles, with titles such as: 'VJ culture'; 'The invisible city: Design in the age of intelligent maps'; 'Preparing designers for jobs that don't exist (yet)'; 'Creative gesture or vapid prototyping? The importance of fictional products'; and 'The last stage is acceptance: Robots and design', among others.
