This book is pretty cool – it tells you how everything is a design and things that you can learn from designers. There are 75 different lessons throughout the book that will give you a new outlook on life and all its designs and where they may be hiding! Think big – but be aware of long term consequences. I don’t consider myself to be much of a designer, unless you count my scrapbook pages – but my latest theme has been purple/pink/blue and now I am being told to avoid purple. Eek. I guess I’ll just continue on, not being a designer 😉 (Even if it did work for Prince) Although I think my favorite lesson was “Don’t Be Different, Be Better” #38.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
This anthology of design concepts reveals what you can learn from Mad Men’s Don Draper, why the Beatles were not just brilliant as musicians, how a lemon tart can make you world famous and why purple is just always so wrong. Unless you’re Prince or the Pope, that is, but this book is for everyone who isn’t.
