$45.00(AUD)  inc GST

In a series of illuminating and entertaining conversations, twenty-one of today's most influential and revered designers discuss, celebrate, and analyse their craft. Adeptly interviewed by brand consultant and talk show host Debbie Millman, these designers reveal their early influences, day-to-day rituals, enthusiasms, aspirations, and failures. For pop-culture enthusiasts as well as longtime designers, students, and those just starting their careers, this book will prove an invaluable guide to the history, controversies, milestones, and everyday foibles of working, living, and thinking as a graphic designer.

“The title of How to Think Like a Great Graphic Designer is all wrong. It’s not really about graphic design, and it’s not really a how-to book. It's a delightful opportunity to eavesdrop on some of the most curious and creative minds of our time.” —Malcolm Gladwell, author, The Tipping Point and Blink “In this collection of lively interviews, Debbie Millman does more than provide a kaleidoscopic portrait of contemporary graphic design through the lives and thoughts of its leading practitioners. She captures the passion for excellence that all great work—whatever the field—depends on.” —Virginia Postrel, author, The Substance of Style and The Future and Its Enemies “Millman has gathered astonishingly frank revelations from acclaimed designers, and the resulting book is provocative, enlightening, and surprising. Anyone who struggles daily to create great work will be inspired and encouraged by these intimate glimpses into remarkable minds.”—Joyce Rutter Kaye, editor-in-chief, Print magazine “Debbie Millman and her interviewees conspire brilliantly to map the best thought and practice in the world of design. Listen in as they contemplate the future of design and its imminent colonization of innovation, product development, and someday, perhaps, all of marketing itself.” —Grant McCracken, Research Affiliate, Convergence Culture Consortium (C3), MIT
