The Complex Designer is not a book about design. More precisely, it is about design, but not in the usual sense: it doesn’t cover basics of composition, have rules or exercises.
It is a book for rebels: those who act out of the pattern, ask uncomfortable questions and pave their own way. And for those who want to be like that, but just don’t know how.
The author talks about both the sophisticated matters—the culture of thinking, communication leadership—and the inevitable work routine. For example, about why it is important to learn how to “spin the spring.” Or why you need to always take as much money as possible. Or how to build solid design.
These are not ready-made recipes, but rather detailed reasoning: why something doesn’t work and how to rethink the process to make sure it does work and bring joy. And the advice is equally useful for designers, editors, managers, developers and other creative types.
