Work for Money, Design for Love: Video Review

Work for Money, Design for Love image

“Work for Money, Design for Love” is a new book authored by brand identity designer, David Airey. After receiving a complementary copy of this book a few weeks ago, I thought it was about time that I did a review. Now, I haven’t done a video on this site for a couple of years now so I have also taken the opportunity to make one about this book. It’s only seven minutes long, and I hope you get a general idea about the book and what my feelings are about it…

In a nut-shell, this is a very down-to-earth book that is really easy to read. It has pretty much everything you need to know about being a freelancer and running your own business. There are plenty of examples, tips, advice and other tidbits of information from a varied amount of other designers apart from David. I think that even if you are an experience designer, you will walk away with a better understanding of the design profession after reading this book. Of course, it’s an invaluable resource for newer designers, too.
