The Design Entrepreneur Book

The Design Entrepreneur - "Turning Graphic Design Into Goods That Sell" book was always an attractive read for me. This book by Steven Heller & Lita Talarico, was published in late 2008 & I haven't been able to stop thinking about it! Of course, another book would always come up & I'd skip buying this one! But I finally purchased it from Amazon & I'm so glad I did! This red softcover, 240 page book comes housed in a black die-cut cardboard case. Fancy....

Anyhow, this book is ideal for graphic designers who are trying to turn their designs into profit. Is that you??? Selling your work/designs online is no easy task, there's a lot of work involved. Designers may be be natural entrepreneurs at heart, but very few will actually take the BIG step to become successful & make money doing so.

Within the 240 pages, you'll find interviews with design entrepreneurs as well as a great resource section. In the end, this book will provide Graphic Designers with inspiration. It's up to you, to take tha
t inspiration & move forward with it.

  9. You rock for posting this. I'm going to totally go buy it. I'm a graphic designer that was unfortunately laid off from my job, which fortunately led to me opening my etsy shop. I want more than anything to just sell my own work and live happily ever after :)

    This book sounds like exactly what I need to be reading! Thank you so much

  12. LIFESTYLEBOHEMIA:
    I would recommend one of the books I read before I started my own business...it was pretty helpful:
    "A girl's Guide To Starting Your Own Business" -
    http://www.amazon.com/Girls-Guide-Starting-Your-Business/dp/0060521570

    Hope this helps!

  13. STELLA AND HODGE:
    I also know people who were laid off & it's just a terrible time right now the way things have been going. Starting your own business really gives you a more secure feel...at least in my opinion. I believe you get out of it - what you put in.
    All the best!
