“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.

  1. Hi Andrew,
    I’m a freelance creative artworker and needed a bit of inspiration to expand my business in these lean times. It is difficult to know where to look and who’s advice to seek to achieve your aspirations. I think the book by David Airey you’ve recently reviewed is as good a place as any to get cracking! Thanks for the review – I will be purchasing the book based on it!

    Have a cracking Christmas!

    Cheers

    Jon

    PS loving the cupboard – fantastic use of space!

  2. My book’s first video review, thanks Andrew! Brilliant of you to take the time, and it’s humbling to listen to how my blog helped you with your own self-employment. Here’s to an excellent 2013 for you and for everyone in the Kelsall residence. Thank you.

  3. Jon → Yes, my cupboard may be small, but it has everything I need to run a one-man show (well, apart from Darth)! I’m putting some more shelves in here over Christmas, too. Have a great Christmas yourself.

    David → I hope you and your wife have an excellent Christmas as well. I cant believe I’m the first to do a video review, although I’m sure you’ll have more reviews that are more in-depth.
