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.

I am an upcoming junior in college studying design and photography. I went on my very first interview for an internship and the individual told me to add more of my own work that was done outside of school. I saw this book in Barnes and Noble (FYI buy the book online because I spent about $30 on this it was worth it but save the money when you can lol) and I flipped through it and immediately bought it. It has great design challenges for all levels. It's a great book to build a solid portfolio with different tasks such as branding to package creation. You will not regret buying this book.

The book is very practical in a way students really need it to enhance their skills. I bought it to see if I could use some ideas with my editorial class and think it will be amazing! Teachers, students and professionals looking for new experiences to increase their portfolios should really buy it.
