UX Book Club: Burn your Portfolio

This book is full of quick tips that are funny and practical for creative professionals of all kinds. Author Michael Janda (MrJanda) includes advice on teamwork and collaboration, relationship building, managing clients, bidding work, production processes, and more. 

This book is available from Peachpit press, one our sponsors. See our Sponsor Page for discount details.

“It takes more than just a design school education and a killer portfolio to succeed in a creative career. Burn Your Portfolio teaches the real-world practices, professional do's and don'ts, and unwritten rules of business that most designers, photographers, web designers, copy writers, programmers, and architects only learn after putting in years of experience on the job.”

As always, you don't have to read the book to attend and participate in the conversation. Everyone is welcome!

If there is a book or article, you've wanting wanting to read and discuss with the group, please suggest post a title and link on our message board.

    I am last-minute un-RSVPing. I'm having a beer with my cats and then dusting a harpsichord.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
