Popular Lies About Graphic Design

Popular Lies… is my first self-authored and designed book, published by Actar in January of 2013. Now in its second edition the book has sold over 10,000 copies worldwide and has been translated into Spanish and Chinese. On its release, the book became an immediate best-seller on Amazon.com and .co.uk and remained in the top 10 for several months.

The book is an attempt to debunk the various myths, mantras and misconceptions that permeate the industry of design. Tackling lighter subjects such as Helvetica’s supposed neutrality and urgent briefs, it also talks about more worthy topics such as the validity of design education, the death of print and pitch planning. In addition, the book features contributions from a variety of design luminaries including Stefan Sagmeister, Milton Glaser, David Carson and Christoph Niemann making it – hopefully – a must for students, recent grads and more seasoned practitioners alike.
