All told, How to be a graphic designer covers just about every aspect of the profession, and stands as an indispensable guide for any young designer.

Saying that, I think this book is worthwhile for any budding designers or artists, even if you skim the bits you don’t think are relevant. My favorite parts perhaps are an emphasis on a often neglected aspect of freelancing: be nice, don't be a sourpuss and have some EQ. I should note that while this book is geared towards graphic designers, the advice in it applies to probably 90% of design disciplines. There is a lot of practical information, but it also gets into the thinking and philosophy that is the foundation for a successful design career. This books gives great insight on the structure of the graphic design world from the perspective of successful working designers.Connectivity, some new tips and interview sections which brought the visions and perspectives of the graphic designer from different backgrounds. The title is great but not really suitable for this book as the question of ‘How to be a graphic designer without loosing your soul’ wasn’t really answered. I found it as valuable as a graphic designer with ten years of experience as I did when I was just finishing my design education. This book is full of gems, that I have found extremely helpful for specific elements of my work and in general.

Excellent book for graphic designers interested in furthering their knowledge of the practical implications of a career in design. I read this book several years after completing my BFA in Graphic Design, I wish I would have read it my last year of school. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Got this book as a belated birthday gift for my boyfriend who's just finished graphic design and apparently he really liked it. There is a lot of practical advice about finding the clients, setting up a studio, working as a freelancer and overcoming your fear of failure and fear of ideas.And this is a book that i am glad i put the effort in and read the first page because by the end of every page i wanted to read the next one and for me that is the sign of a well written book.

He seems to give us a very honest and candid account of one designer's experiences grappling with and growing within the design world; and starting, running and ultimately leaving a design studio to go off on his own again. Some of the advices were also outdated, but you can still get the valuable learning from it and adapt it to modern technology or practice today. Can't say much more about it due to the fact that I haven't read it, however, listening to graphic designers perspective it is a good deal! The advices were a bit common sense, but it still gives a good foundation for those who are new in the field.It was difficult to distinguish whether the problem lay in design, or designing for THAT particular company.
