Design in Conservative Times tackles conservatism in and around design, challenging both designer and user to actively engage with, and reflect upon their positions within our current, politically charged landscape. The focal point of this reflection at large ranges from hands-on issues within specific practices, to the broader, more fundamental motivations that fuel them.

Design, Theory / History / Criticism
Within this book, Onomatopee wishes to explore the conservative currents and cadence in and around design(ed) culture. By inviting both graphic design and fashion design professionals to comment, reflect, promote, critique, provoke and/or contemplate on conservative culture in relation to their own visions, design practice and designed goods, we wish to lay bare the intricacies and dynamics of design(er) in society today. As a result, issues of feminism, decolonisation, queerness, engagement, ecology, production and preservation in relation to conservatism today come to the forefront of conversation.
