The book provides valuable insights in the importance of interdisciplinary thinking, design as a tool to solve problems of the society, etc. on the one hand. On the other hand it features a great selection of Peter Seitz's design work besides information about his career.
It was really interesting to read how the design community of the twin cities was (is) influenced and shaped by Peter Seitz in a long lasting way...
I strongly recommend this book to all design and liberal arts students!

A very good fast read and nicely designed book. I found this book interesting because being a student and part of the design department he founded I never knew or even heard of Peter Seitz. Reading his thoughts on design and communication through design I found very inspiring.

What I really liked about this book is the great visual chronological timeline of his work.
