Yes, there are plenty of sample projects for you to do in this book, but I think the best part of it was how in each project, there were explanations on what to do to get a desired result. For example, if you were to design a logo, it would explain what to look for in the competition, how to beat them, and how to interpret the information you've gathered to complete a design. It was a good refresher for sure.

This book was purchased for a graphic design course I was taking. Usually at the end of each semester I would sell back my books however this book I kept as it is very useful and informative. It has soo many great exercises that help keep everything I learned fresh in mind. Very useful and would recommend it to anyone.

I haven't finished the book yet, but from what I've completed I really like it. Reminds me of assignments I'd get in school.

The book has projects but as a teacher I was looking for short projects for students. I am not returning the book as it does have several good ideas.

If you are a Graphic Designer, or thinking about becoming one, this book is will help you with your work.

It won't make you a better designer, but it will help you refine your skills, brush-up your creative thought process and reinforce a 'more work-output' attitude for design variations and refinement.

The book is not necessary for a graphic designer, it is only to better help one who is 'creatively stuck' on a project.

I like this book because it has some good useful information and I feel that, especially in this field, that the more information one has, the better he/she is in the field.
