Review quote

Book of Ideas presents a beautiful showcase of Radim Malinic most important design work to-date, alongside an engaging collection of his observations and musings spanning a vast range of topics within the creative industry. Split into three sections - work, creativity and mind - each theme is generously divided into intriguingly titled sub-sections (such as the 100 songs rule and rewire your brain) that touch on everything from the art of choosing clients to how to banish self-doubt. Like the work displayed inside, the design of Book of Ideas is trademark Malinic: crisp, clean and vibrant. And while some sections do not go into as much depth as we would like, each one is peppered with brilliant flashes of insight. For new designers, Book of Ideas offers beneficial words of advice gained from Malinic s decade-plus as a freelance designer and art-director, while for more experienced creatives it is an inspiring collection of thoughts and ideas about how to make it in today's fast-paced creative industry. --Julia Sagar - Computer Arts Magazineshow more
