LEAP Dialogues captures diverse, dynamic leading voices with the explicit focus of discussing career paths for designers at a critical emergent moment: when the recognition of and demand for social innovation design is growing, but the challenges and opportunities concerning designers’ work in the field are not fully articulated. This is brought to life in the book’s original graphic identity and dialectic structure, developed by renowned designers Lupi Asensio and Martin Lorenz of TwoPoints.Net.
