Designing for the Future Book

Craig Mod

About this video


What are the core systems comprising the future book? What are the tools that need to be built? As designers we will need to provide the scaffolding for these systems. The interfaces for these tools. Not just as surface, but holistically—understanding the shifting of emotional space, the import of the artifact, the evocation of a souvenir, digitally. How will we surface the myriad data just below the words of digital books in organic, clean and deliberately designed ways? Join Craig as he answers the question: “How will we shape the future book?”
