As well as being a  gifted graphic design I have always found the books by Robin Landa to be well researched, concise and incredibly  helpful to the designer starting out or even for the gifted designer who isn't comfortable promoting themselves.  Additionally she is well connected to the design world at large and provides thoughtful insights into establishing your career... and she shares her knowledge with an unguarded generosity. I could easily recommend this book book required reading in an undergraduate design program or just as a valuable book for your own  library.  _Jennifer Sterling
