San Mateo, CA
Everybody here loves to read and learn about the wonderful world of design, right? RIGHT? (if not, this would be a great place to start your new passion).
As designers, it's important to keep up with the philosophies and trends in our industry, much of which is captured in the endless number of titles published on the subject. Here you can post and share your favorite design-related reads with your peers and spread the wealth of desig knowledge amongst the community :)
For example, the two reads I can't recommend highly enough are:
"Design Professionalism" by Andy Rutledge (http://designprofessi...) - A comprehensive essay detailing the principles, attitudes and gritty "get over its" of the modern Design Professional.
"Design Is a Job" by Mike Monteiro (http://www.abookapart...) - A lighthearted yet realistic introduction to the professional world of Design from the infamously eccentric producer of the "Fuck You, Pay Me" lecture (https://vimeo.com/220....
happy posting, happy reading!
