The responsible design agenda is growing. There is the need to serve all users, including special constituencies, to preserve resources and the natural environment, and to enhance our communities and the workplace. This quarter's contributors articulate the nuances of this effort as it is shaped by businesses, government agencies, and professionals. They define decision-making principles. They offer case studies illustrating successful strategies. Most compellingly, they demonstrate that responsible design is good business, stimulating innovation, opening up new markets, and yielding products and brands that are both competitive and profitable.
