'Designing Programmes - A compilation of four theoretical publications by Karl Gerstner.
Theoretical? Gerstner is a designer. Firstly as a partner in an advertising agency in Basle. Secondly as a maker of pictures.
But there is a connecting link between the two roles: instead of seeking individual solutions for problems, he designs programmes for solutions.
Designing programmes means a method and an approach. There are several solutions for each problem, and one of them is the best under certain circumstances. In other words: designing programmes itself means a programme; rooted in practice, however, rather than in a philosophy of life.
To illustrate what exactly it involves in practice is the theme of this book. Hence: it is a very practical introduction for everyone who is interested in problems of contemporary design in the widest sense.
Paul Gredinger has written an introduction to the introduction.'
