How to be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your Soul
This book has timeless advice for graphic designer's new and experienced. Adrian Shaughnessy has written such an informative book that every designer should own. The advice in here is as relevant today as it was when it was published in 2005.
This is my copy that I bought back then, and as you can see it's been heavily used. If you are looking to be a freelance designer, or start your own studio this book will guide you and help you make the right decisions. I can't recommend it enough.
It's full of advice and interviews with such designers as Neville Brody, Natalie Hunter, John Warwicker & Corey Holms to name a few.
I've included some of my favourite quotes from the book here:
