Beyond Design: Making Socially Relevant Projects Successful
Graphic designers play an important role in rendering ever more complicated information transparent and understandable for a wider audience. To stress this urgency, Dutch graphic designer Renate Boere dove headfirst into the world of project management lingo, confidentiality statements, copyright, complicated contracts, the search for stakeholders, and grant applications. This journey resulted in the designer's novel Beyond Design.
This nonfiction novel provides insights into the contemporary, often hybrid, practice of today's multi-talented graphic designers. The story tells how Boere decides to take matters into her own hands by working on socially relevant design projects. An exciting and informative book that gives insights into the designer's do's and don'ts while working on projects from start to finish.
Includes a 10-step guide with worksheets designed to help readers architect their own socially relevant projects.
