Graphic Design Books #1: Freelancing tips, beginners web design & minimal illustration


You can learn Graphic Design through books. I did. I’m a self-taught designer so the main resource I had when learning was graphic design books. In this video I recommend books that talk about tips for freelancing, beginners web design, and some minimal contemporary illustration.

I’m a strong believer that you can become a graphic designer without going to school to get a degree for it, you can teach yourself graphic design. So with this series I want to focus on the best creative books I’ve found along the way that are gonna help you become a self-taught designer.

There are always 3 books, they’re categorised as Head, Heart and Hands…

Head: books for the creative mindset

Heart: books about my favourite illustrators, photographers, designers, filmmakers etc

Hands: technical graphic design knowledge, how to learn the rules and how to break them

Hope you enjoy this series and find some of these books useful!

Books I mention (in order)…

Head – ‘Don’t Get A Job… Make A Job’
