Designers and their brief

I’m reading a very interesting book about graphic designers and their brief. Text/Images is 50/50 so verrrry easy to read 🙂

The concept is straight forward, 7 top designers explain how they have approached the different briefs such as a brief from a new client, charity, rush job or low budget job.

It’s only $6 on Amazon at the moment so had to share with you! The shortened link to the

Graphics Explained; 7 top designers, 7 briefs, 49 solutions in their own words.

book is: http://amzn.to/MERn9q

It’s great to see the process from an idea to the finished product illustrated with beautiful images of the graphic work.

If you are in the creative field or interested in graphic design you will definitely enjoy the read, and for 6 bucks you can’t really go wrong!

Enjoy!
