Design is a Job by Mike Monteiro (Paperback Book)

Co-founder of Mule Design and raconteur Mike Monteiro wants to help you do your job better. From contracts to selling design, from working with clients to working with each other, you’ll learn why navigating the business of design is just as important as the craft of it. Cultivated from his own experience, Mike packs this brief book with knowledge you can’t afford not to know. Mike Monteiro is cofounder and design director of Mule Design, an interactive design studio whose work has been called “delightfully hostile” by The New Yorker. He’s written four books: Design Is a Job, You’re My Favorite Client, Ruined by Design, and The Collected Angers. He’s not as smart as his wife, or as charming as his dog. He’s pretty much given up on tech and is considering a future as a lighthouse keeper or record store owner, or maybe opening a record store in a lighthouse. A Book Apart publishes detailed, meticulously edited examinations of single topics. Their books come in two formats: Standards (100–150 pages, available in paperback and ebook) and Briefs (50–70 pages, available in ebook and print-on-demand). Both are the perfect size for topics ranging from technical to theory: responsive web design, Git, and JavaScript to content strategy, design principles, management, and more.
