How to be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your Soul, 2nd Edition
For graphic designers, there is no obvious career manual to guide them through the profession. In ‘How to be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your Soul,’ however, Adrian Shaughnessy draws on his wealth of industry experience to provide such a handbook. Aimed at the independent-minded, it addresses the concerns of young designers who want to earn a living by doing expressive and meaningful work and avoid becoming a hired drone working on soulless projects. It offers straight-talking advice on how to establish your design career and suggestions for running a successful business.
This revised 2nd edition contains all-new chapters covering professional skills, design thinking and global trends, including social responsibility, ethics and the rise of digital culture. Also included are interviews with designers such as Jonathan Barnbrook, Sara De Bondt, Stephen Doyle, Ben Drury, Paul Sahre, Dmitri Siegel, Sophie Thomas and Magnus Voll Mathiassen.
