The creation of The Pocketbook is thanks to Christian Eres (graphic designer and illustrator), Cranio DSGN (vector illustrator and graphic designer) and Grace Garcia (product designer, freelance illustrator and editor) who are all based in Valencia, Spain.
The Pocketbook consists of 120 tips collected from creatives in the design world. Even though it says ‘a successful graphic designer,’ the tips in the book are applicable no matter what your speciality. You just have to pick and choose which applies to you. It includes inspirational quotes from creatives all tied together with elegant design elements.
The book takes you through a journey of four areas: Personal Growth; Working Smart; Self-Promo; and Working with Clients. Every page is oozing with beneficial knowledge and information for designers; along with beautiful illustrations on a few. Definitely worth a full read!
