Teaching Graphic Design: Course Offerings and Class Projects from the Leading Graduate and Undergraduate Programs
I write books. That’s what I do. I’ve always loved the form and the process. This book could possibly be a website or app, but the book is a more tactile tool.
2. What is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader?
Teaching Design is about “teaching design”. Its pretty clear. These are syllabi that may inspire design teachers to include some or all of the characteristics and tools into their own teaching.
I hope they will think more seriously about what and how they teach.
4. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?
Find a good idea. Do your homework. And make certain you have an audience. Then think of how the book can be expanded to other platforms.
Books are not going away. Publishing will embrace more media, but books are not anachronisms.
6. What great challenges did you have in writing your book?
Finishing it. Then getting it publicized. There are hundreds of ways to sell a book and hundreds of ways to fail.
7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?
It has to be the one they need. This is not a book for pleasure, it serves a purpose, therefore the reader has to know what that purpose is.
What does it really take to land on a best-seller list?
