Kinfolk explore the relationship between community and design. How can design strengthen bonds with our families, friends and neighbours? And how can good design improve our quality of life? Design is a type of communication. It’s about the way an object or idea speaks to its audience. But good design not only gets its message across—it also engages us in a conversation. The voices in this issue’s pages have taught us that there’s no set of rules that govern what constitutes “good design.” Form doesn’t have to follow function, function doesn’t have to follow form—in fact, there shouldn’t be any following at all, only leading.
