Some of you will know that my background is in graphic design, having studied at University of Leeds fifteen years ago. I never pursued it as a career, in all honesty I didn’t really think I was very good at it. I far more enjoyed the idea stage and research than the actual creation of design. Which explains a lot how I ended up starting a blog to discuss design.
When Laurence King Publishing sent me ‘The Typography Idea Book: Inspiration from 50 Masters‘ which is the follow-up to ‘The Graphic Design Idea Book’ by Steven Heller and Gail Anderson which was released in April 2016, I was more than happy to flick through this book.
