"Design + Culture - A Return to Fundamentalism?" is the new in-depth trend report from David Report.

Design has become the embodiment of a larger process of creative ‘culture-mongering’
that has become a means to capture ideation, innovation and enterprise and made to
stand for cultural identity. Whilst the application of design is multiplying exponentially, it is
loosing its vailidity as a cultural icon. We need to reclaim a more long lasting cultural
integrity and return to a type of cultural fundamentalism.
–A return to cultural fundamentalism is essential if we are to reengage our tribal past and
work toward a a collective local global future. The measure of a civilisation is the strength
of its culture. The desire to reclaim a more long lasting cultural integrity is to create
memorable experiences, and emotionally rewarding objects, says Brent Richards, cowriter
of the new report.
–The new report is no two in a trilogy which started with ‘Time to Rethink Design’. This
time we are looking deeper into the relation between design and culture, which is not
always as healthy as one would like, says David Carlson, founder of David Report and cowriter
of the new report.
