House Industries

The Process Is the Inspiration



A standard-bearer of American design since 1993, House Industries answers the burning question, “Where do you find inspiration?” with this illustrative collection of helpful lessons, stories, and case studies that demonstrate how to transform obsessive curiosity into personally satisfying and successful work. Presented in House’s honest, authentic, and often irreverent style, and covering topics ranging from fonts and fashion to ceramics and space technology, this beautifully useful 400–page volume offers a personal perspective on the origin of ideas for creative people in any field. Most important, this book shows that there’s no sense in waiting for inspiration because inspiration is already waiting for you.

Praise for House Industries

Praise for House Industries: "If there were any place I wish I worked that I don't, it's House. They're artists; their work is extraordinary."  —J. J. Abrams "What I love about House Industries is that they search through corners of culture for something valuable that you'd never thought of before, then raise it to a higher artistic level. It's a very difficult thing to do."  —Shepard Fairey, artist and skateboarder "[House] makes all the best typefaces." —David Lee Roth "Design is a willingness to surrender to a journey. You often hear about “design driven” companies but most of them that want to license the Eames name are thinking of it as an acquisition for their collection of brands. Every once in a while you encounter a company like House Industries who is willing to go on that journey and grow our brand as well as theirs." —Eames Demetrios
