Graphic Design book to get you started
‘Becoming a Successful Graphic Designer’ is a well written graphic design book, by Neil Leonard (course leader for graphic design at Plymouth College of Art, UK.) that presents the world of graphic design and its beauty.
As students prepare to enter the world of work, there are many decisions that they need to make about what type of career they want: Freelancing? Working in a design agency? Setting up their own business? They also need the practical advice about how to work with clients, how to organize themselves, billing, etc. Through interviews with people at all levels of design, the author provides down to earth and straight forward information that is relevant to today’s students looking to start a career in design.
“They are the future of Graphic Design, and they should go into industry with that mind-set and the confidence to make things better.” [Neil Leonard]
