Hi, I hope it is OK to post this.
I’ve seen some conversations here and in person about moving from code/UX/UI etc to design. The traditional option is to go and spend a few years at college but for many of us, this isn’t really an option.
I studied design when I left school and found that the most valuable thing it provided was space and time to try out ideas and follow set briefs given by the teacher.
On this basis, I decided to write a book.
It is a book of practical design exercises and projects to help readers develop their design skills at home in their own time. It doesn’t teach the technicalities of typography and colour theory but prompts the student to research these as a part of each project and developing their own work based on what they’ve learned.
