    Designing for the Web is one that I just came across that you can read for free on the web. It's about web design specifically, but it covers all aspects of being a web designer, including the business side. You can read it for free online here:

      Not really a graphic design book but more of a inspirational book for creatives.

      Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky

        thanks so much guy... I've got the creative thing in spades, everyone loves my designs, but I can't manage myself out of a paperbag when it comes to business. Therefore remain borderline broke. Got some learning to do and books to buy.

          "Business Secrets For Designers"- FANTASTIC!!!!!

            I also use YouTube

            Books aren't the only way to learn about Graphic Design. I use YouTube a lot mainly because I can see what's happening and I am able to practice while the video is playing.

            Thank you for the list of book to read. I will certainly make use of the list. Much appreciated

              Hi whitegordon936 and welcome to GDF!

              We ask that all new members take a few minutes read through important threads here and here. These will explain our rules, answer frequently asked questions and explain some of the long running jokes you'll run into.

              Please keep your arms and legs inside the forum at all times, and leave your keyboard in its upright and locked position. If forum pressure should change, panels over your seat will open revealing bacon. Secure your own bacon before helping others.

              Enjoy your stay.
              Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.

                  Yep, all are good and finest but still to select the better option, one has to spend quality time in choosing the better business design.

                    Reply to Price of Foil vs. Varnish for business cards?
                    Neither Foil nor Varnish are done on a digital press - you would have to get your Business Cards printed Litho. For 100 cards this is always going to be expensive - you could probably get 2000 cards...

                    With body text, one tends to want use a simple serif for easier reading. Like B and PrintDriver have said, who is reading the magazine and even the genre of the content will dictate the typeface. I used...

                    Reply to Please critique my jazz poster
                    Coloring can make or break a piece. Jazz tends to be a moody, soulful music. The lime green does not fit that moody feel and it might have been better if you pushed you color scheme a bit further to add...
