In today’s world, it’s never enough to complete your studies and then never pick up another book. Everything around us is changing so quickly, and we know that we need to keep up if we want to find and experience continued success.

Some industries require this more than others, but, at most, it just makes sense to stay up-to-date and inspired by the continued growth of the industry.

Graphic design is one industry where the tools, techniques, and principles used by working companies and designers are constantly evolving. At the intersection of art, marketing, and communication, graphic design has a complicated role to play.

The tools used by graphic designers, in particular, are being continuously changed by the growth of technology in parallel industries such as software, hardware, and marketing. If we don’t take the time to catch up, we’ll fall behind before we even realize it.

When I sat down to consider what topics the best books on graphic design might cover, I realized just how long that list is:

  • Brand identity
  • Logos
  • Elements of design
  • Typography
  • Current trends in graphic design
  • New technology guides
  • Design studios
  • Seeing art in graphic design
  • Design history
  • Design theory
  • Inspiration catalogs

Plus, several books about how to manage both a career and a life while working in such a busy and fast-paced industry are available.
With so many books to choose from, it can feel like an impossible task to ever catch up. How can continued success in such a rapidly changing industry be found if all of these books cannot be read?

As great as it would be to read all of the graphic design books, that’s not what’s needed, nor is it practical to try to read every book. Instead, focusing on the best graphic design books will bring success.

Introducing Culture Identities: Design for Museums, Theaters and Cultural Institutions

Introducing Culture Identities: Design for Museums, Theaters and Cultural Institutions

I find Museums and institutions in Singapore are generally very safe in design. This book opens up a whole new world of how western graphic designers are experimenting with new systems of design and the works created are very fascinating. You also get to hear from both the designers and clients view of the design. It inspires me to keep pushing the current standards of Singapore further as the shape of design grows in Singapore. This book is very inspiring for young designers as it will push them to think out of the box. It will let them understand how the designers and clients think about design (like why it is designed in a certain way) and they can learn tips and lessons from them.

Poster Graphics

Poster Graphics

Posters are mostly used to present information. This book showcases experimental poster design. The works are very free form, very abstract and shows how information can be presented in a very unique manner. This book will show how graphic design can translate information in a very fun and expressive manner​ -​ Information can be translated into pictograms and patterns​; ​Texts can be expressive and unique. Loosen up and let your senses take charge.

Brandjam: humanizando las marcas a través del diseño emocional

Brandjam: humanizando las marcas a través del diseño emocional

A powerful new concept from renowned designer and business guru Marc Gobe.I’ve always known that I’ll be working for designing or art-related job fields. And branding has been fascinating to me, now I look back and realise how much advertising and branding books I’ve been crazily reading during my teen days. It changed my creative thinking of how impactful branding is to a company, how emotion is tied to designing and business, to manipulating.

Gol estúpido arbitrario

Gol estúpido arbitrario

Certainly my favorite book cover of the year, the graphic designer’s memoir drops you right into a kid’s eye view of 1970s Greenwich Village. With it’s chunked sections and hand-drawn illustrations, it gave me the same kind of quick, skippy joy I get when reading Vonnegut.

The Elements of User Experience: User-Centered Design for the Web

The Elements of User Experience: User-Centered Design for the Web

These three books are about how people actually use design in their lives. They helped me understand this very basic idea: There are no dumb users, only bad designers. Take the time to create based on how your design will be interacted with. Test it. Iterate. That's how you become a good designer.

Linchpin: ¿Eres indispensable?

Pensé que podría poner mi dinero donde está mi boca. Sigo quejándome de que los jóvenes no están en contacto con algunos libros esenciales sobre publicidad que me han ayudado a dar forma a la forma en que practico mi oficio hoy, pero nunca hice nada al respecto. Así que estoy comenzando aquí la lista definitiva de libros para leer. Lo agregaré a medida que reciba sugerencias y se escriban más buenos libros.

Roba como un artista: 10 cosas que nadie te dijo sobre ser creativo

Roba como un artista: 10 cosas que nadie te dijo sobre ser creativo

Parte de la ambición es modelarte a partir de aquellos a los que te gustaría parecerte. La filosofía de Austin de robar y remezclar despiadadamente a los grandes puede sonar terrible al principio, pero en realidad es la esencia del arte. Aprendes robando, te vuelves creativo robando, te esfuerzas por ser mejor trabajando con estos materiales. Austin es un artista fantástico, pero lo más importante es que comunica la esencia de escribir y crear arte mejor que nadie en quien pueda pensar. Es un manifiesto para cualquier persona joven y creativa que busque dejar su huella. Combínalo con Show Your Work, que también es excelente.
