The AIGA Guide to Careers in Graphic & Communication Design

The landscape of design is changing rapidly. Designers are increasingly working in unfamiliar (and exciting) territory with a lot of questions: How do I stay relevant? How do I prepare for a career when my dream job or project might not exist in five years? What is it like to be a modern designer?

The AIGA Guide to Careers in Graphic and Communication Design (Bloomsbury, 2017) is here to help you navigate your career—and answer those anxiety-inducing questions along the way. Cezzar offers contemporary perspectives that help professionals, students/aspiring designers, and educators explore the expanding field of design, better understand its changing trends, and find their place within it.

Originally written in 1993 by Sharon Helmer Poggenpohl, this new take evolves the invaluable resource with newly emerging disciplines, new practices, and interviews with more than 40 designers from every discipline and career level, including: Nicholas Blechman, The New Yorker; Rob Giampietro, Google; Njoki Gitahi, IDEO; Hilary Greenbaum, Whitney Museum; Holly Gressley, Vox Media; Cemre Güngör, Facebook; Natasha Jen, Pentagram; Renda Morton, The New York Times; and Alisa Wolfson, Leo Burnett Worldwide.
