Description

Design Is a Job Co-founder of Mule Design and raconteur Mike Monteiro wants to help you do your job better. From contracts to selling design, from working with clients to working with each other, this brief book is packed with knowledge you can’t afford not to know.

"This book will teach you how to be part of a service industry without becoming a servant." —ERIK SPIEKERMANN

"Running a design shop is hard. When someone actually gets one off the ground, they’ve got something rare and valuable, so they keep their strategies and practices secret. What makes this book so unique is that it plainly and honestly describes how a successful design shop actually works." —JOHN GRUBER, Daring Fireball

"‘Design Is a Job’ is so good it made me want to cry. I am absolutely using it as a textbook in my class this year." —KAREN MCGRANE, Managing Partner, Bond Art + Science

  • A book about Common Sense

    Smartly written and directed at one a grouping of people you may belong to or aspire to belong to. In reality this book while thin does enough to shine a light on common sense in work and life that can be applied virtually everywhere. You may think you have common sense and are grounded enough to believe it. Then this book is for you as it will support your confirmation bias. If you don’t have common sense then reading this book won’t help but it won’t hurt either.
  • Lots of awesome
