Format: Hardcover
This is a much needed and appreciated book on clear and consice communication for students writing on their design projects, design statements for themselves about their portfolios, cover letters for employment purposes, not to mention all the aspects of proposals, business communication, applications, brochures, etc. As an educator in the design arts for over 25 years, I am especially happy to have this resource to share with design students and also find much useful information included for myself. Thanks for a great addition to my design library!

Format: Hardcover
Whether you're a student or a design professional, good writing is the key to advancing your career: a key too often missed in design schools which don't inform students how to improve writing skills. Enter the second, updated edition of Writing for Design Professionals, a survey expanded to consider internet marketing, communication and job hunting and which fills the gap in blending a focus on design professionals with instructionals and methods of clarifying and improving writing. From producing brochures and marketing through proposals and portfolio development to writing for school or media and producing appropriate public speeches, Writing for Design Professionals is one of the most comprehensive, specific guides you could want.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The content of this book is useful and should come in handy to any design professional at any point of their career.

I've docked this book 2 stars due to redundancy and the fact that it is very difficult to read due to poor typesetting (margins are only about 1/4" from the spine).

By Ree Cornell on March 3, 2014
Format: Hardcover
A much needed basic guide for design professionals seeking clear, concise guidelines for written correspondence and communication. Much of the content might seem basic and even redundant to more seasoned and practiced writers, but for the bulk of designers, who receive little to no training in writing, the book is indispensable.
