Review Text

"New book from the excellent Craig Oldham. Full of pearls of hard-won wisdom and non-patronising advice. Should be on every tyro designer's book shelf. And wouldn't be out of place on the shelves of some hardened pros, either. Not much swearing. Odd, for Craig." Adrian Shaughnessy

"Funny, useful, honest, well-intentioned, good-looking and profane as its author" Tim Lindsay, D&AD CEO

"This is a good looking book that demystifies and democratises the route to being a designer and clearly demonstrates that anyone with the desire to be creative can have a go, regardless of background or educational background" Wayne Hemingway
