We came across this recently and wished it had been around when we started out… ‘Design is a Job’ by Mike Monteiro, has some great insights into the cut and thrust of life in the design lane, it is open honest, frank and to the point.

From contracts to selling design, from working with clients to working with each other, its packed with knowledge you can’t afford not to know. Design Is a Job charts a course to sustain you through all the changing contexts of your professional life.

This book will teach you how to be part of a service industry without becoming a servant.
