Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This book is pretty much an indispensable piece of work for any creative person who runs, or aspires to run, their own design studio. There's a series of interviews with studio heads and sole practitioners from some great design firms which focus not on their work, but the history and culture of their studios. How they set up, how they get clients, how they run their studio, and their general approach to business.

Allied to the interviews, there are reproductions of work, photographs of the design studios, and a detailed section at the end going through what a design studio needs to set up, from equipment and furniture to archiving and billing systems. It's a fantastic book, and highly recommended.

It pains me to say this, but although the book is beautiful it is a total pain in the arse to read. The typeface is very small, light, and printed in a fairly light grey.

The content itself is pretty good though. And the book is attractive if not very user friendly.

I bought this book to use as reference for an essay I was writing on achieving a work life balance as a graphic designer. I run my own studio so found it extremely interesting to read other designer's experiences, as well as finding lots of useful information for my essay. The only down side is the font and tiny point size makes it quite difficult to read. In fact the woman sitting next to me on the train, who was looking over my shoulder, commented on how difficult it looked to read! But don't be put off, this is a great book and for any designer setting up their own studio I'd highly recommend.

Love this book and couldn't put it down. With insights into studios such as Build which are really honest I was quite surprised how good it was (I should never doubt Adrian Shaughnessy - Most of his books are recommended reads!)

Recommended for any designer or people thinking of setting up a design studio - theres lots of great wee tips and facts.
