Neil Leonard is working on a book for Bloomsbury/Fairchild titled ‘Creative Careers: How to become a successful Graphic Designer’ and he’s looking for top tips, interviews and exciting and inspiring work to illuminate the chapters.
Each submission will be captioned, and will include URLs and company names. This could be great publicity for you and a chance to guide the career aspirations of many budding designers.
The book is aimed at recent (and soon-to-be) graduates who wish to pursue a career in graphic design. It’s a very practical introduction to the trade and will cover everything from necessary skills to potential business models. It will be published initially in the US, UK and AUS. Eventually it will be translated for the rest of Europe and the Far East.
The previous book in the series (How to become a successful Illustrator) has sold very well around the world.
All is required is 300dpi, high-res TIFF files of your work and the information you would like included.
Also Neil is looking for some short, snappy ‘top tips’ to include alongside relevant chapters. If you have any pearls of design wisdom, please send these on.
Lastly, he would really like to conduct short interviews with people in a variety of design related job roles. Some words from Account Managers, Studio Managers, Copywriters, Developers and more would be a great addition to the book.
Deadline: 10th of Feb
