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.

Author Adrian shared what we are already aware of (maybe because I read the second edition), but reading the same thought from another creative man and from another country brings connection in terms of hustle, fear and learning.

How to be a graphic designer offers clear, concise guidance for these questions, along with focused, no-nonsense strategies for setting up, running, and promoting a studio, finding work, and collaborating with clients. It informs readers about freelancers, small offices, larger ad agencies and corporate in-house in the contemporary work place.

Written by a designer for designers, it combines practical advice with philosophical guidance to help young professionals embark on their careers. 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. Connectivity, some new tips and interview sections which brought the visions and perspectives of the graphic designer from different backgrounds.The book contains all-new imagery, and the previous interviews have been replaced with new ones, each focusing on a specific issue of importance to graphic designers. It weighs the advantages of working for a firm versus going freelance, talks about the process of finding clients and proposing work, and provides a number of other pragmatic tips for the working designer. The practical information and tips are a bit outdated for 2020 but the gist of the thing is helpful for any young graphic designer.

While this book does cover mostly freelance work where you engage with each step of the design process, Adrian brings us back again and again on how we can work with clients and ourselves to keep our ideas in our designs (for the most part). I found it as valuable as a graphic designer with ten years of experience as I did when I was just finishing my design WILL tell you what to do once you've acquired the software skills, graduated from a fine arts school, developed an eye for design, and found a partner with whom to start your own agency. 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. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Graphic designers constantly complain that there is no career manual to guide them through the profession. I think the book is mostly suitable for a freelance designer or a designer thinking to start her/his own business.

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. Any graphic design students, interns, employees, art directors, businessmen or creative artists can look for this book.If you are in the same situation, with a person who's just settling in in this industry don't hesitate getting this book! 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.
