In the golden age of American industrial design, Henry Dreyfuss Associates knew that there was more to design than just looking good. Products had to be good, crafted to work with the people who use them.
With this in mind, HDA designers Niels Diffrient and Alvin R. Tilley created Humanscale, including its ingenious data selectors, providing access to over 60,000 human factors data points in one easily referenced, user-friendly “portfolio of information”.
Humanscale has long been out of print. Now we’re bringing it back.
Call for Chapters – The Wiley Handbook of Design +ACY- Innovation

Dr James Moultrie, Cambridge University (UK)
This edited volume is a timely and comprehensive collection of thought provoking perspectives from leading thinkers in design and innovation and discusses how design might respond to societal challenges towards 2030 for the benefit of society.
The Wiley Handbook of Design +ACY- Innovation presents an extensive yet pragmatic exploration of the future of design and innovation. It goes further than merely making predictions about the future, rather it provides a compelling and meaningful dialogue regarding the broader economic, political and resource challenges society will face towards 2030 and discuss the potential responses that design can make. In doing so the future landscape of design and innovation is explored from multiple perspectives and aims to provide snapshots of the future that inform the practice and study of design today, and into the next decade.
The handbook places design in the wider global landscape +IBM- across both developed and developing countries +IBM- and provides leading thinkers with the opportunity to interrogate its future. This engagement provides the reader with a highly informed perspective on the broad direction of travel for the future of design and innovation and both qualifies and quantifies future trajectories underpinning its development.
This volume considers the contemporary debates of design and innovation, emerging directions, future challenges, manufacturing models, technological futures, interconnectedness and complexity, digital technologies and the impact of the +IBg-digital+IBk-, the changing role and expectations of the consumer, future skills, knowledge and education agendas, design democratisation, and the ever evolving contribution of design to innovatory ways of thinking, doing and being.
An international perspective is provided through case studies, interviews and cutting-edge research. It comprises six main sections:
1. Foundations +IBM- Foundations for thinking about the future of design
2. Sectors +IBM- A critique of design and innovation from a sectorial perspective
3. Skills +IBM- The future of design skills, knowledge and education
4. Geographies +IBM- Design across the world, regions and nations
5. Challenges +IBM- Addressing grand challenges through design and innovation
6. Manifesto +IBM- A Design Manifesto for 2030: Learning from the future to inform the present
