Applying the tools, techniques and terms of design thinking to the complexities of romantic relationships.


For centuries, designers of all kinds – from Industrial Designers to Graphic Designers, Architects to Advertisers – have been developing innovative ways to approach complex design challenges.

In Dating by Design, the tools, strategies, methods and ideas of some of history’s greatest designers are applied to the often-challenging realm of human relationships. 

Blending humour with practical advice and wisdom, Dating by Design aims to help the reader navigate the complexities of modern love to improve the quality, health and durability of their relationships.

For too long we have accepted relationships as being “too complex”, “magical”, or “messy” to be within our control. Dating by Design asserts that anyone can learn how to design a better relationship with pen, paper and a little creativity.
