No one makes it alone.
We all owe a lot to those who have taught us, helped us grow. A couple of guys who have had a huge impact on my life and work as a designer are John McWade and Chuck Green.
Their books, templates, tools and websites are must-have resources for anyone interested in Graphic Design. They combine expertise in Design with teaching that is clear, concise and fun to read.
