    • February 8, 2011

    I’ve just started a new job where I’ve been charged with righting a sinking ship in bad shape due to seven years of being run into the rocks by a person who did not understand marketing, branding, design or the web. This book looks like it could have interesting, provocative and useful ideas – another bucket that could help me bail out the water and get to work on patching the hull.

  11. /

    Seems like an interesting book, might chase it down on Amazon at some point.

    • Magdalena Sala,

    • Stacy,
    • February 9, 2011

    This book looks very intriguing, and I would love to add it to my collection. As a designer, you can never read too many books from too many different sources. Never stop learning!

    • Matt,
    • February 10, 2011

    I always love learning about the intersection of design and marketing, and books with up-to-date examples are so difficult to find. This would be an awesome resource to continue my education!

    • khader,
    • February 10, 2011

    A book with a lot of experiences in it, I wish I would be the lucky person to get such experienced full book

  25. /

    I have a wealth of personality and charm but still don’t have a giant suitcase full of cash …. I’m running a new design and marketing business by the seat of my pants with a great business partner, but mostly I have a nice portfolio, accompanied by its evil twin, Mega Student Loans. I can use a book like this to do frivolous things like put food on my table; I love design theory and value concepts above all, but without awareness of current trends, I’m becoming obsolete without having begun. (Why does “begun” seem to not be a real word? It sounds like it means “to arm someone”). The whole marketing model has changed and I wanna know everything so I can be a superhero on top of the world! And have food to eat.

    • Sarah,
    • February 10, 2011

    Started my final, fantastic and frightful year studying industrial design, and have to commit myself to a major project to propel my portfolio towards ‘money and success’, and am absolutely stumped on where to go with this opportunity. Love design literature to shreds (metaphorically) and would love to educate myself about facets of design that I have never experienced! Enjoy your site for its inspiring anecdotes, never change! Love Sarah

  26. /

    This book will inspire me to take my skills to creative depths unchartered in my brain.

  27. /

    I love Design, eve if i’m not a big expert i really love to read and discover great ideas from great designs!!

    Good luck!

  28. /

    I don’t have any design book to have proper guidance……so i need this book to improve my skills and perception….

  29. /

    Hey, Pretty impressed with books style, typography, graphics. I’m also dealing with more and more branding related projects, and this book would really help me to understand this subject better.

    Thx and Looking forward…

    • Kyle,
    • February 11, 2011

    I’ve just started to get into design, and I want to be better, but I feel like I don’t have enough inspiration. And I really can’t find to many great books online to read about the subject, so it would really be a great help!

    • Adoxus Suxoda,
    • February 11, 2011

    At least design books will always live while newspapers choosing digital over plain recycled paper…

    • Dano Alexander,
    • February 11, 2011

    Very curious about the contents and layout.
    Love OXP!

    • Jasper Valero,
    • February 12, 2011

    I think any design book is worth reading and absorbing what you can from it. I am currently building a collection both on my physical bookshelf and my mental one. So this book would be a great addition.
