Book Description

1 May 2009
Recharge Your Design Batteries is a general resource for graphic designers and visual creatives, who have the desire to broaden their horizons and inject a new level of innovation into their work. This inspirational and practical book explores the creative process, and how to keep it fed and stimulated. All too often, busy designers have little time to let their imaginations loose on a project, which is constrained by a client, a budget, and a deadline. Recharge Your Design Batteries shows designers working beyond their day-to-day situation on alternative tasks, intended to truly flex their creative muscles.

3.0 out of 5 stars food for thought 19 Jun 2011
By Mummy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a former graphic designer contemplating returning to work after some time out to raise kids.
Some interesting food for thought here, but I can't say there was any one thing in particular that jumped out and wowed me.
In fact as I sit and write this I can't actually remember anything that was in there, though I only flicked through it a few times.
Not quite the inspiration I was looking for (not that I know what that is but I'll know it when I see it.)

Maybe if I give it time it will grow on me, but as yet I haven't had a "wow, wish I'd thought of that" moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 11 Jan 2013
By Jewelry Magic - Published on Amazon.com

This book was great! It is just what creative types need to jump start the creative process! It's not a formulaic book with tutorials to follow. You actually have to do the work and have creativity to have this book work for you. It's just what I needed to refresh my skills and creativity. Excellent resource.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected. 29 May 2009
By Jennifer Tant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was expecting a book that would, "recharge my design batteries" by jump starting ideas and saying, "Hey, have you looked at it this way?" Or perhaps discuss trends and where they're going. I didn't get anything from this book. If you want to buy it, buy mine. It's in great shape. Read once!
