Catharine Fishel's collection of anecdotes and interviews is far more than a bullet-pointed outline leading to success. How to Grow as a Graphic Designer is about defining success, quality of life, and balancing different types of goals and values through inspirational - and highly quotable - peer advice. Divided into four parts, the focus moves outward from the designer's internal world to the real world they will need to navigate.
Jennifer Emery's upbeat and positive performance perfectly suits the result: an intimate one-on-one conversation with mentors like Michael Bierut, Terry Marks, and partners Sean Adams and Noreen Morioka on their struggles and revelations, both professional and personal.
Helping graphic designers find professional and spiritual support in the ever-demanding struggle to stay creative and profitable, this book reveals how some of today's most successful and intriguing designers keep growing as artists and as people with the power to affect public attitudes. Topics addressed include how to keep track of one's vision, the meaning of success, what sustains designers spiritually, and how to embrace change and stay fluid. Also provided is priceless peer advice on strategic issues such setting a goal for one's company, growing or shrinking a business, and promoting one's uniqueness.
