What I love about Design is a Job
Whether you are a designer or developer—or project manager or team lead—if you are working with clients in a creative industry, you must get this book! It’s pure gold. If you work in a creative team, I strongly recommend your entire team reads it. — Galen
From the publisher
Co-founder of Mule Design and raconteur Mike Monteiro wants to help you do your job better. From contracts to selling design, from working with clients to working with each other, you’ll learn why navigating the business of design is just as important as the craft of it. Cultivated from his own experience, Mike packs this brief book with knowledge you can’t afford not to know.
Excerpt from the book
Your toolbox should contain tools for input (goals and research), activity (make things!), and output (sell those things!). A designer’s work starts way before a single pixel gets placed and ends way after the last one is locked in place. You may not take the lead in every, or even any part of the process; throughout your career you’ll work on small teams, big teams, and sometimes alone. But even when you don’t own a particular process, make sure to (respectfully) insert yourself. The more you know, the better your work will be. And don’t wait to be asked.
