Tony Fry is Professor of Design Futures at Griffith University, Queensland College of Art, Brisbane Australia. He is also an award-winning designer, a theorist, a farmer, and director of a project developing an academy of indigenous-based creative practices in East Timor. The author of nine books, Tony is regarded as one of the most progressive thinkers on design in the world today. On his acclaimed book, Design as Politics, a reviewer commented: To say it’s timely’ is an understatement. Fry offers us one of the most prescient theses for the design of a different possible future.”
