The Manual of
Design Fiction



—in collaboration with the Near Future Laboratory, the definitive text on the origins, evolution, and current practice of design fiction: the making of fictional artifacts in order to explore questions about the future, technology, culture, and change. Coming fall 2022.



“An unparalleled, rigorous insight into the philosophy and practice of design fiction from the pioneers of the approach... and a crucial one at that; one that will not limit us to tools we already use to address familiar problems, but rather an approach that opens up the ways in which we can address uncertainty and traverse new possibilities.”
- Anab Jain, director of award-winning London-based studio Superflux

In addition to producing our own independent media projects, No Media helps an international roster of partners and clients better understand and communicate their place, purpose, and opportunities amidst the uncertainties of their immediate contexts and the broader world.


Our focus isn't just on how things work in major Western cities, but lived realities and complex systems across the globe. We’re driven to understand peoples and the cultures and systems that sustain them, from infrastructure and markets to public institutions, helping to make better sense of a world gripped by transformational change.

Most of our engagements entail a hybrid mix of approaches and expertise areas, but largely involve some combination of research, sense-making, and strategy with editorial and creative work across a variety of mediums, from print and digital to film/video.
