Popular Lies About Graphic Design

Designer Craig Ward (who I’ve previously posted about here and here) has written a new book entitled, Popular Lies About Graphic Design. Craig describes the book’s subject matter as such:

Drawing on my ten years experience, it tackles lighter subjects such as design fetishists, Helvetica’s neutrality and ‘urgent’ briefs, alongside discussions on more worthy topics such as the validity of design education, the supposed death of print, client relationships and pitch planning. In addition, I approached a variety of established practitioners such as Milton Glaser, Stefan Sagmeister, Christoph Niemann, Paul Sahre, James Victoré, Michael C. Place and many others for contributions on their own insights and experiences and to whom I owe a debt of thanks for validating the project in my mind.

If you’re interested, you can see a few more details of the design on Behance, and pre-order a copy for yourself on Amazon.
