Description

I found that I am not alone in the big bad world of Graphic Design, and that some of the fears and insecurities I have are shared by designers all over the world. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. En mi opinión eso es algo bastante complejo de lograr ya que en el ámbito creativo todo avanza, emerge y pasa de moda MUY rápido.

That said, the advice given seems very good, and I will perhaps revisit this review once I have been able to implement some of the techniques from this book and measure how effective they really are. The book is split up into sections based on different areas of being a graphic designer… finding a job, working for yourself, or someone else, freelance work, setting up a studio, which are all useful regardless of whether you think it’s relevant to you or not. It offers straight-talking advice on how to establish your design career and suggestions - that you won’t have been taught at college - for running a successful business.Also included are interviews with leading designers: Jonathan Barnbrook, Sara De Bondt, Stephen Doyle, Ben Drury, Paul Sahre, Dmitri Siegel, Sophie Thomas and Magnus Voll Mathiassen. These are all unbelievably valuable, but not what I was expecting from the title, which led me to believe it would be an explication of the socially conscious uses for design.

The book also includes inspiring new interviews with leading designers, including Jonathan Barnbrook, Sara De Bondt, Stephen Doyle, Ben Drury, Paul Sahre, Dmitri Siegel, Sophie Thomas, and Magnus Vol Mathiassen. Designers are quick to tell us about their sources of inspiration, but they are much less willing to reveal such critical matters as how to find work, how much they charge, and what to do when a client rejects three weeks of work and refuses to pay the bill. I think the book is mostly suitable for a freelance designer or a designer thinking to start her/his own business. Regarding design briefs, he offers some good suggestions: take up a role of scepticism and interrogation towards them, be wary of conventional wisdom, rely very much on common sense, and look for what is missing from the brief (which is often the key to unlocking really successful work). I took off 1 star because a few of the examples come across as a little bit dated, and as I'm in the early stages of my graphic design education, I can't vouch for how effective the author's approach is in the contemporary design world.

I picked up this book after a little bit of exhaustion with the thought of what I should expect in the future.

And - quite inspiring this - he gives us the green light to rely on our INTUITIONS, without apology. I think the not losing your soul is about pushing towards where you want to see graphic design headed, and not just designing solely for the sake of a paycheck. Any graphic design students, interns, employees, art directors, businessmen or creative artists can look for this book.Hay algunas cosas que ya no aplican tanto o que podrían no servirle a un diseñador que ya tenga más experiencia peeero en general es una muy buena lectura para empezar con libros de diseño. hiemloch sehr gut, sollte man direkt nach oder noch während dem studium lesen, lehrt viel über das arbeiten als designer (auch wenn der titel esoterischer klingt als der inhalt hergibt, demn wie man jetzt seine seele nicht verliert, hab ich jetzt auch nicht unbeding gelernt. I'm glad I continued because the rest was a gem, full of discussions and ideas that I've been thinking and talking about for years.

The book is obviously one successful designer’s opinion, so it’s to be taken with a pinch of salt, and although it’s an updated version I still think a few things are a bit outdated.

Adrian Shaughnessy's 'How to be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your Soul' reminded me what a wonderfully exciting and interesting profession it is. viel markiert), die interviews am ende hätte es nicht gebraucht, verstehe nicht ganz was sie bringen, sie stören irgendwie, das buch hätte auch ohne abschlag davor enden können. It offers straight-talking advice on how to establish your design career and suggestions – that you wont have been taught at college – for running a successful business. 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.How to Be a Graphic Designer offers clear, concise guidance along with focused, no-nonsense strategies for setting up, running, and promoting a studio; finding work; and collaborating with clients. 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. It covered a lot of the less glamorous areas of becoming a designer: things like actually getting a job and dealing with difficult clients.
