OVERVIEW

365 Habits of Successful Graphic Designers Insider Secrets from Top Designers on Working Smart and Staying Creative

Need some guidance? Just want to say something? Opening this book is like having lunch with a fellow designer to discuss design-related topics, lament, or rejoice. In every step of the design process, from effectively marketing oneself to getting clients to work with those clients to get the desired outcomes on the press, good practices may be identified.

The book 365 Habits of Successful Graphic Designers presents solutions from a variety of independent designers whose years of practice have enabled them to come up with not only the most original but also the most effective answers to their client's design problems.

This book includes a vast collection of content from the authors' earlier works and focuses on both business tactics for success when working alone and daily routines that encourage these designers to stay creative. In its pages, eminent designers from the past and present who work in industries like graphic design, fashion, architecture, typography, and industrial design speak out with a certain amount of irreverence on a wide range of subjects like deadlines, inspiration, competition, rules, respect, education, and handling criticism.

Their ideas are condensed into pithy, quotable statements and one-liners that perfectly capture their personalities and reveal their worldview. Take a moment to read thought-provoking passages by Art Chantry, Margo Chase, Ed Fella, John C. Jay, Hideki Nakajima, Stefan Sagmeister, and Rudy VanderLans. These top designers' thoughts will aid in directing other designers in their approach and execution of designs that satisfy their clients.
