Graphic Artist’s Guild Handbook of Pricing and Ethical Guidelines is another great book to add to any designer’s arsenal.
It’s an extremely helpful guide to manoeuvring through the business aspects of the creative field and answers common questions such as, “How should I price my work?”, “What’s the deal with copyright?”, and the dreaded “How do I make a contract?” (contract templates are included in the the book).
I really wish this was part of every art school’s syllabus because it’s just that useful. At least I know what to get all my designer and illustrator friends for Christmas this year.
I was lucky enough to get a copy of Offscreen Magazine Issue #2 thanks to Nick who himself is featured in this issue. It’s a nice light summer read for those who are interested in the stories behind the people who make great things on the web.
Thanks again Kai and Nick!
Last week was incredible.
Stayed with my cousins at Moreno Valley, ate at In-N-Out Burger, explored Vegas, went swimming, visited Hoover Dam, ate at Jollibee, had funnel cake at Santa Monica pier, saw some paintings at Getty Center, did more swimming, walked around Hollywood, rode every ride at Universal Studios, then saw The Dark Knight Rises.
In short, I got to spend an entire week with the best people at some of the most stunning places in the country.
I can’t wait to go back.
