What’s the difference between this book and How to Be a Graphic Designer without Losing Your Soul? Adrian Shaughnessy’s classic book is a guide to the professional aspects of being a graphic designer, from setting up a studio to finding work. How to be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your Sanity is intended to be a complimetary guide, about the personal wellbeing of graphic designers on an everyday basis.
I’m in another creative field other than graphic design, is this book for me? Whilst much of the contents applies to other creative endeveours, it is very tailored to the specifics of being a graphic designer. But I would suggest reading my blog which is written to help all kinds of creative people get unstuck.
