Oct 18, Emanuel Serbanoiu rated it it was amazing. Packed full of good stuff. Not bad, especially as a general overview of some common design issues for new designers, but to me it felt like it lacked depth on most of the topics.

While the principles can be applied in so many professional trades and businesses not forgetting art-serving as a text booksome forms, ideas and mediums of expressions, I felt could be applied generally and socially too, almost like some of those unviersal on ‘how to influence’ or ‘effective communication’ but more better then them presumably.
