Do Design By Alan Moore
Do Design is for designers, creatives and those seeking to create beauty. It is encouraging, optimistic and philosophical at heart. Built from short sections on varying topics, Alan Moore wanders in and out of anecdotes, quotes, advice and reflection.
If nothing else, read the section titled 'Fourteen Practices to Create Enduring Beauty'. It begins with this:
"Because beauty and great design appear to be so effortless, we mistake it to be easy. Or, that genius was bestowed upon its creators by some divine spirit. There is no doubt we all have gifts. But it is only when we practice daily that we develop the capacity to see, design and create work that we can be proud of – that delivers something useful to the world."
It's a short read, a relatively small time commitment, but highly recommended. Go on the journey with Moore and find yourself inspired to create beautiful things. Do Design is part of the Do Book Co.
