I was approached by the Editors, Steve Rutherford and Jane Bartholomew of Nottingham Trent University, at New Designers One Year On to contribute to their book.

It's the first Design textbook aimed at undergraduate students. It is finally in print and it has already reached the number one spot on Amazon for undergraduate and postgraduate career guides!

Illustrated with over 500 colour pictures, it describes the various design disciplines – graphics, fashion and textiles, three-dimensional design, craft, spatial, interactive media and theatre, film and television design.

The Design Student’s Handbook has already been noted by the reviewers and the publisher Pearson Education as an essential core textbook for all design students and those wanting to gain a greater understanding of the design industry.

It contains over 100 stories, career profiles and first-hand quotes from students, self-employed designers and industry specialists. The 16 Chapters have been written by experts.

The book covers the key practical, theoretical and cultural fundamentals of design with chapters on creativity and innovation, design history, context and culture, colour theory, aesthetics, how to design with sustainable, social and ethical consideration and how to communicate design. It also covers career planning, job hunting and setting up in business.

The Handbook also includes plenty of advice and tips on how to prepare to study for a design degree at university, therefore supporting pupils in the transition from School to Further and Higher Education.

We, the editors, also envisage this being a useful library resource and of huge support to career advisors in explaining to pupils about the job opportunities available in the design industries.
