Design | Great Resources

So I am always looking for new information and sources to learn more about the field I am going into! I love to sit down and flip through design books and magazines. So I wanted to share some of my favorites!

Every designer should own a copy of Pricing and Ethical Guidelines, it is a great source for figuring out how to charge a client! I love looking at the fun pages of Hand Job by Mike Perry, he is a seriously talented illustrator, and is really inspiring! Flaunt:Designing effective, compelling and memorable portfolios of creative work, this is a really great source of inspiration if you are trying to build a portfolio (like me) I am in the process of putting together my first design portfolio and this book is full of some really great advice! (I ordered the pdf, it's only $15 and really great, totally worth my money! Layout workbook is a good source to learn about, well, layouts haha. And last I really love Communication Arts, it's full of great inspiration and it's nice to have an update about what's going on in the design world.

Anyone know of any great design books? Leave a comment and a link to the book!
