📚 Whether you’re a student or teaching yourself, finding quality design resources for beginners can be difficult. Many essentials of design have been written about best in books by professionals, not online.⠀
These are the types of books that will give you a foundation of knowledge to massively improve whatever design it is you are looking to create — logos, websites, apps, books, and more. These were the most helpful design books I read when I first started learning about design:
1. Grid Systems in Graphic Design by Josef Müller-Brockmann from @niggli_verlag
2. Logo Modernism by Jens Müller from @taschen
3. Designing with Type by James Craig
4. Logotype by Michael Evamy from @laurencekingpub
5. Interaction of Color by Josef Albers from @yalebooks
Bonus: 4 tools that may be useful in your designer way:
Crello — the simplest online image editor. A simple but powerful tool to create awesome designs for any social media format — posts, covers, graphics, and posters using the best software on the web. It’s easy! A lot of animated designs.
Webflow — all-in-one web design tool that allows users to design, build, and launch responsive websites visually.
Funnelytics — an incredible tool that helps you build the best marketing funnel mapping.
Flowkit — allows designers to create frighteningly fast user flows within Sketch and Figma.
